Program Overview

Due to the high interest in the Internal Medicine discipline, as of 2018 parallel to the Internal Medicine study program in Utrecht, ESAVS offers an alternative Internal Medicine program which has the same scope covering all relevant topics of Veterinary Internal Medicine in a total of 6 weeks of residential course work.
While equivalent to the Utrecht IM – study program in content as well as in regard to ECTS Points meeting all requirements for the Certificate and Master Degree in Internal Medicine.

Please note that the new study program has a different structure and is composed of 6 one week (5 day) Courses:

  • Internal Medicine: Gastroenterology & Liver and Pancreas
  • Internal Medicine: Nephrology & Endocrinology
  • Internal Medicine: Respiratory and basic Cardiology
  • Internal Medicine: Haematology and basic Oncology
  • Internal Medicine: Infectious diseases / Immunology and basic Neurology
  • Internal Medicine: Toxicology and basic Emergency and Critical Care

Each course can be taken independently in any sequence as fits your schedule. The courses are case oriented with emphasis on practical problem solving exercises.

Course Overview
Clinical work-up of respiratory medicine and basic cardiology problems will be presented in a case oriented approach. Typical and less common problems of dogs and cats presented with respiratory diseases (coughing, dyspnoea, tachypnoea, sneezing, nasal discharge, stridor, etc.) and cardiac problems (heart murmurs, arrhythmias, syncopies or weakness) problems will be used to demonstrate a structured and problem-oriented work-up.
