In May 2022, Improve International launched its unique online Veterinary Academy Series in association with the University of Cambridge. Starting in November 2022, the Equine Oncology semester will be run by the Cambridge Equine Hospital, whose team consists of Anna Hollis, the only equine vet in the world to hold an MSc in clinical oncology; Daria Coleridge, who specialises in surgical management of equine oncology; and Sarah Voss, who has extensive oncology experience following her work at the University of Glasgow.
We spoke to the Cambridge Equine Hospital to gain a deeper insight into what to expect in this revolutionary Equine Oncology semester.
Can you tell us about the Cambridge Equine Hospital and the types of cases you see there?
How important is it to share the learnings from the Cambridge Equine Hospital through the Veterinary Academy Series?
Luckily for those vets who feel this way, the Veterinary Academy Series Equine Oncology semester will have four lessons to combat this.
Across the month of November, these highly engaging lessons will cover the diagnosis and staging of neoplasia in the horse, surgical management of neoplasia, medical treatment of sarcoids and medical treatment of other neoplastic diseases in the horse.
Anna and the team will be sharing how to find the best solution for mysterious cases you may come face to face with. There’s lots of information to take into consideration, so how can you filter through all of them and make sure you’ve selected what’s right for your patient? Plus, the team will be discussing the pros and cons of up-and-coming treatments which can help you in the near future.
What are some of the key points from the Equine Oncology semester you’ll be discussing?
What does the future of equine oncology look like?
As Anna puts it, you will see many interesting equine patients, but it is guaranteed you will come across an oncology case. Ensure you know what the latest best practice and research is and what to do when handling these complex cases by joining the Equine Oncology semester in November 2022. At the end of the semester, there will be a live webinar with all the speakers so you can answer any questions, share your thoughts on what you have learnt and discuss any specific cases you have come across. Upon completion of the semester, you will gain 12 CPD hours to help towards your annual target.
