Necropsy Course November 2023– The Davis-Thompson Foundation
Join us for a two-day course designed to help candidates that are preparing to take the Clinical Proficiency Examination (CPE) by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Educational Commission for Foreign Veterinary Graduates (ECFVG) and the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) National Examining Board (NEB).
Additionally, veterinarians and veterinary technicians looking to improve their necropsy techniques will find benefit in this training.
This time around, we will have a pre-registration period, until Oct 10. Depending on interest or number of registrants for the in-person offer, on Oct 10, we will decide to proceed with the course or cancel and reimburse registrants. Tell your friends!
Spend two days with Dr. De Negri and Dr. Helgert, learning necropsy techniques through a thorough demonstration, followed by hands-on practice and a mock exam.
(Although we believe that the in-person instruction, hands-on practice, and mock exam will provide superior preparation for the CPE exam, we are providing a remote option, including an interactive necropsy technique demonstration for those who cannot attend in person.)
Schedule (times in CDT):
Saturday November 11:
Sunday, November 12:
Fees and registration:
*In person registrants must provide proof of rabies.
**PPE and necropsy instrumentation will be provided.
***All registrants will receive access to the necropsy demonstration recording for 1 month.
