The world's largest faculty of veterinary medicine”
Veterinarians must continue their education to adapt to new developments in this field”
Veterinarians face new challenges every day in treating their patients. The Postgraduate Certificate in Preoperative and General Aspects in the Diagnosis and Treatment of Fractures in Large Animals comprises a complete and up-to-date educational program including the latest advances in traumatology and orthopedic surgery in ruminants (cattle, sheep), camelids (camels, alpacas and llamas), swine (pigs, wild boars) and equidae (horses, donkeys and mules).
The theoretical and practical content has been chosen taking into account its potential practical application in daily clinical practice. Furthermore, the audiovisual material collects scientific and practical information on the essential disciplines for professional practice.
In each topic, practical cases presented by experts in Traumatology and Orthopedic Surgery in Large Animals have been developed, with the objective of the practically applying the knowledge acquired. In addition, students will participate in a self-evaluation process to improve their learning and knowledge during their practical activities.
The teaching team of the Postgraduate Certificate in Preoperative and General Aspects in the Diagnosis and Treatment of Fractures in Large Animals has programmed a careful selection of techniques used in the diagnosis and treatment of ruminants (cattle, sheep), camelids (camels, alpacas, llamas), swine (pigs, wild boars) and equidae (horses, donkeys and mules), including the description of musculoskeletal surgery and rehabilitation in those species to which they are applied.
The teaching surgeons of this Postgraduate Certificate are graduates of the European or American College of Veterinary Surgeons and have extensive experience both in the university field and in private practice. In both areas, they are responsible for large animal surgery services in leading veterinary centers and most of them direct residency programs, Master's Degree programs and research projects.
As a result of the training that the teaching staff of this Postgraduate Certificate undertook in North America and Europe, the techniques have been extensively tested and are internationally recognized.
All of these elements mentioned above make this Postgraduate Certificate a unique specialization program, exclusive and different to all the courses offered in other universities.
