Principal Course Master Week 1: Prof. Dr. David Lloyd, DECVD (UK)

The ESAVS veterinary dermatology courses cover the core of the dermatological curriculum over a three year period, with particular emphasis on the diagnosis and management of animal skin disease from a primary care perspective.
This program is designed specifically for veterinarians wishing to gain experience in dermatology and to deepen further expertise in the practical management of patients with skin diseases.

Participants of course I in dermatology will discuss basics in anatomy and physiology of the skin and its appendages and will learn about a large number of common dermatological disorders. The successful management of difficult to treat problems will be discussed. Wet labs will provide practical approaches.
