Overview

Cambridge Equine Hospital is a multidisciplinary practice with specialists in equine internal medicine and surgery, certificate holders in equine reproduction and equine internal medicine, and a qualified veterinary physiotherapist. Our Director Anna Hollis is the only equine vet in the world to hold a MSc in Clinical Oncology, our surgeon Daria Coleridge has a particular interest in surgical management of equine oncology, and Sarah Voss has extensive experience with oncology cases following her internal medicine residency at the University of Glasgow. We have a diverse oncology caseload. We look forwards to introducing our first equine module which will focus on the approach and management of equine oncology patients.

Delivery consists of:

  • Videos, recorded in 2022 using state of the art chroma technology. Use of a green screen produces high quality resolution recordings and delivers a more engaging learning experience when compared to standard laptop webinar recordings. Videos will be organised in 20- minute, easy to manage learning episodes and can be accessed in your own time over the month.
  • Notes for downloading
  • Journal club where the team will be signposting suggested further reading
  • Online lesson on ‘How to Reflect’ and a reflection forum for posting of reflective comments
  • Live ‘Meet the Team’ one hour webinar per semester where members of the specialist team will be presenting clinical cases and answering questions. These will be recorded and made available for those who cannot attend in person.
  • Reflective quiz at the end of each semester to recap your knowledge

This semester is aimed at vets in general practice, as well as those studying for further qualifications. It has also been made available for veterinary nurses.

Veterinary students are welcome to attend.
