General Information

The UT College of Veterinary Medicine with the support of Karl Storz Veterinary Endoscopy is offering an innovative minimally-invasive scoping course specifically designed to meet the needs of small animal residents and specialists desiring in-depth scope training. This unique course includes:

  • A comprehensive syllabus and instructional videos on scope care
  • 20+ hours of online didactic training and online assessments
  • 6 days of hands-on laboratories

The successful participant will learn flexible and rigid scope anatomy, handling and cleaning; laser physics, handling and safety; cystoscopy, rhinoscopy, bronchoscopy, upper and lower gastrointestinal endoscopy, laparoscopy, thoracoscopy, and associated advanced procedures including lithotripsy.

Each topic will be presented online in a series of ~30 minute modules that may be replayed individually for integration into the typical clinician’s busy lifestyle. Information covered will include equipment required, case selection and anesthetic considerations, procedural techniques, tips and tricks, and complications. After each topic is completed, a quiz will be given to assess the participant’s learning. The online portion (completed by the participant at his/her own leisure) MUST be completed by March 15, 2015.

During the 6 days of on-site laboratories, a mix of dry, cadaver and live animal laboratories will be used for optimal learning and mastery of the material.
