VETS TO GAIN INSIGHT INTO LARGE ANIMAL NEUROLOGY AT ESVN-ECVN SYMPOSIUM RESIDENTS’ DAY

7 June 2016

A dedicated Residents’ Day is targeting the field of large animal neurology at this year’s Annual Symposium of the European Society of Veterinary Neurology (ESVN) and European College of Veterinary Neurology (ECVN) in Edinburgh.

Professor Holger Volk, Clinical Director and Professor of Veterinary Neurology and Neurosurgery at the Royal Veterinary College, said many residents don’t get the necessary exposure to large animal neurology cases during their training, as the focus in most programmes is companion animal neurology.

Residents’ Day - Thursday, September 15th – which forms part of the Annual Symposium running September 15-17, will see international speakers sharing first-hand experience of cases involving equine and bovine nervous systems.

“We have remarkable speakers at this year’s symposium, who are leaders in their field,” Professor Volk said. “The Residents’ Day is one of our key events and will give veterinarians the opportunity to engage in meaningful discussions with our speakers.”

Speakers for the day include: Dr Caroline Hahn, University of Edinburgh; Professor Richard Piercy, Royal Veterinary College; Professor Antonio D’Angelo, University of Turin; and Professor Bruce McGorum, University of Edinburgh.

“The programme will cover topics such as equine neurological examinations, acquired neuromuscular diseases of horses and bovine neurological diseases,” added Professor Volk.
