Global Expert in Veterinary Internal Medicine to give Keynote Lecture for Improve International Clients at the London Vet Show

26 October 2016

US - Delegates of Improve International have been invited to an exclusive CPD meeting with one of the world’s most respected specialists in veterinary internal medicine.

Professor Edward C Feldman, DVM, DACVIM (Internal Medicine) is Emeritus Professor of Small Animal Internal Medicine at the Department of Medicine & Epidemiology, School of Veterinary Medicine, University of California, Davis. He will lecture on the diagnosis and treatment of Canine Cushing’s syndrome in two sessions on Friday 18th November at Excel London during the London Vet Show for Improve International.

Professor Feldman has authored more than 160 peer-reviewed scientific publications, 110 scientific abstracts, and 75 book chapters. He is co-editor with Dr Ettinger of the Textbook of Veterinary Internal Medicine and co-author of Canine and Feline Endocrinology. He has lectured in more than 25 countries and received numerous teaching, research and service awards.
Improve International is one of the UK’s leading veterinary training companies with an 18- year track record in providing structured continuing professional development (CPD) for veterinary professionals.

David Babington, Managing Director of Improve International, explained: “We try to bring the very latest thinking to our delegates and to encourage them to build a long term relationship with us as their veterinary career develops.”

“Professor Feldman’s global reputation is second to none in internal medicine and Cushing’s syndrome is a common but frequently challenging condition for vets in general practice.

“We are delighted and honoured that Professor Feldman will be giving our delegates the benefit of his extensive experience and knowledge of Cushing’s syndrome by discussing the most appropriate tests to use; the discrimination of dogs with PDH from dogs with Adrenal Cushing’s and, of course, the treatment of this condition. His approach is a little different to that usually adopted by UK practitioners and we are confident that delegates will find his logic and evidence-based approach stimulating and that they may then wish to adopt it in practice.”

Improve International is part of Benchmark Holdings Plc and based in Swindon. The company provides high quality CPD in a range of formats for veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurses, receptionists and practice managers to help them to develop their skills and knowledge, using a combination of review lectures, case-based discussion and where, applicable, hands-on practical sessions.
