Clinical Zoom Rounds for Vet Techs and Nurses

Starting May 27 – Wednesdays at 7:30pm AEST

With years of teaching in both the US and Australia, Dr Margie McEwen brings to the VetPrac community something for everyone. “Learn with Margie & Friends” Clinical Zoom Rounds are an opportunity for you to bring along your questions and drive the discussion. Margie will introduce her “friend”, the guest presenter, who will start with some material focused on the topic for the session and then you and your fellow participants will have the opportunity to take the driver’s seat. Your discussion, questions and participation in the conversation fuels these sessions. Margie’s Friends will facilitate the discussion and share their experience and knowledge to help answer your questions. As a collective we will learn a lot together in a short period of time. These Clinical Zoom Rounds sessions have limited places and you will need to register through the link below to secure a place.

Be fast, the places are filling quickly.

Do you struggle with…

  • What is normal and abnormal on ultrasound?
  • Knowing what settings to change to optimise your image?
  • How to systematically approach a diagnostic ultrasound assessment?

What if you had an opportunity to practice first hand the key techniques to successful diagnostic ultrasound?

Spend hands on time practicing on a variety of dogs to get a solid foundation of normal ultrasound appearance. You will learn how to scan each different organ structure on multiple planes and develop skills in enhancing your diagnostic images. Like the tracing the ureters to/from the Kidney, scanning the length of the GIT and even locating the adrenals. Gain the skills you need to start scanning back in the clinic.
