Online CPD

As veterinary medicine develops, we believe that webinars are a valuable and important tool in helping educate the profession.

In line with our charitable aims, we will be producing a series of webinars for veterinary professionals which share our current knowledge of transfusion medicine and advancements within the field. 

Upcoming webinars 

We have a series of free specialist evening webinars coming up in conjunction with The Webinar Vet:

  2. An Introduction to Feline Transfusion Medicine - Tuesday 21 April 2020 at 8pm

After each webinar, we will release the recording on our CPD website so if you missed it at the time, you can still access the training.
