Newswise — The American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM) and Infiniti Medical, LLC have partnered to offer advanced veterinary interventional radiology (IR) courses exclusively for ACVIM members to help them improve the health care of companion animals.
The “Veterinary Interventional Radiology Summit” is a special course that will combine “How to” lectures and laboratory training in vascular and non-vascular image guided procedures. This 8-hour intensive practicum will be taught by Marilyn Dunn, DVM, MVSc, DACVIM (Small Animal Internal Medicine) and Todd Cohen, DVM, DACVIM (Small Animal Internal Medicine) and will be held on March 8 at the Oquendo Center for Clinical Education in Las Vegas, Nevada. Two additional courses will be offered on June 29 and November 2, 2013.
“ACVIM has been offering advanced educational courses for over three years to elevate the knowledge base of our members,” said Harold McKenzie, DVM, MS, DACVIM (Large Animal Internal Medicine) ACVIM ACE Program chair. “We are pleased to be partnering with Infiniti Medical to not only bring high caliber education to ACVIM members, but also expand our educational offerings.”
This is a comprehensive interactive course taught by ACVIM Diplomates who routinely utilize IR in clinical practice. Participants will gain experience using the equipment used in IR procedures along with the skills to begin incorporating these novel techniques into patient care. Space is limited to 15 active ACVIM Candidates and Diplomates. This course will provide 8 CE hours and is RACE approved.
“The two ACVIM/Infiniti Medical IR summits offered last year were filled to capacity and very well-received by the participants. The feedback was incredibly positive,” said Jeffrey Solomon, MD Infiniti Medical’s President. “We look forward to continuing to offer the most advanced IR course in the veterinary field to ACVIM members.”
