Description 
Lecturer: Mark Billson BVSc PhD DVOphthal DipVetClinStud MANZCVSc MRCVS Specialist in Veterinary Ophthalmology in Australia
Massey University’s Master of Veterinary Medicine (MVM) Ophthalmology in Small Animal Practice paper (course) helps practicing veterinarians become more confident in ophthalmology issues with small animals.

With practical support material and a knowledgeable lecturer, this course will help you manage troubling and often debilitating eye problems with understanding and confidence, benefiting both you and your patients.

Ophthalmology in Small Animal Practice is taught via distance learning (you may know it as continuing education, distance education or continuing professional development) by internationally-recognised experts in their field.

A printed study guide collates reference material including textbook excerpts and recent journal articles. These lead you through the surgical and medical management of small animal ophthalmic diseases, referring to the most up-to-date knowledge and recent case studies.

These will be backed up online, by image rich practice cases to fine-tune the new skills you have acquired, self-assessments to ensure you have absorbed the relevant information, and lecturer-led discussions. Mark will be available to discuss topics of interest in more detail and answer your questions on the course, or cases you are actively managing.

The flexibility of Massey University’s distance learning veterinary courses means you can study when and where you want, and gain an internationally-recognised veterinary qualification that will help you in your practice every day.
