The programme will cover the latest techniques and therapeutic options for exotic animals and give you knowledge and skills that you can take back into practice with you.

At the end of your programme, you can choose to attend three practical attendance modules which will cover small mammal surgery, avian surgery and endoscopy. For those completing the full Exotic Online Learning Programme, you can purchase these modules at an exclusive price.
