The good, the bad, and the ugly | NT Division 2021 Annual Meeting 5 CPD Points


Nobody told us as veterinary students that the cases you would be presented with, would rarely be textbook cases. Instead, you have to take into account the environment, other diseases, variants of the disease and genetics to name a few of the variables. There is no better way of learning than through experience. This meeting on March 14 will bring together collective experiences of Northern Territory practices in a joint learning experience. There will also be specialists dialling in from Queensland. Don’t miss the opportunity to share experiences, learn lots and have that wonderful veterinary collegiate support that the veterinary profession is famous for.
