BSAVA announces new ‘diagnostics’ member benefit

13 July 2021

The BSAVA has announced an exciting new benefit for members in the form of ‘Diagnostic Rounds’. The sessions will deliver an evening of interactive, case-based CPD once a month from September 2021 and will be free to BSAVA members.

Diagnostic Imaging is a popular topic that has been in high demand from BSAVA members, with the Education team recently announcing their new Postgraduate Certificate in Small Animal Diagnostic Imaging. Building on the back of the success of BSAVA’s online CPD offering which includes Regions Now and Learn Online, each Diagnostic Rounds session will be live-streamed and interactive, with 90 minutes of interpretation of diagnostic images and test results. The sessions will be packed with cases and images, enabling all vets no matter where they are in their career, to keep developing their interpretation skills with truly relevant CPD.

Lucie Goodwin, Head of Education said: “We are really excited to be launching Diagnostic Rounds and have a great line up of speakers and topics for the next twelve months. Our members have told us that they want more diagnostic imaging and case-based CPD and we are delighted to be able to deliver this in a fun, interactive and accessible way. As interpretation skills are relevant to daily veterinary practice, Diagnostic Rounds will be relevant to all small animal vets with something for everyone, regardless of career stage.”

The Diagnostic Rounds will be delivered by specialist diagnostic imagers, medics, cardiologists, and clinical pathologists. Whilst there will be a strong focus on diagnostic imaging, members can also expect additional sessions on ECG interpretation, endoscopy, and clinical pathology. Speakers will include Mike Martin on ‘Imaging cardiology cases’, Ed Hall on ‘Interpreting endoscopic findings of the GI tract’ and Helen Wilson on ‘Imaging respiratory emergencies’.

“BSAVA members can save over £1,500 on CPD each year,” said Lucie. “This includes a range of free webinars and podcasts including the ‘Learn @ Lunch’ sessions and Regions Now courses, as well as substantial discounts on the Vet Nurse Merit Awards, Learn Online courses, and the BSAVA annual Congress. Diagnostic Rounds is yet another great reason to join our Association.”
