DermClub

CAVE is pleased to announce that DermClub will run again in 2019 with a series of 6 evening presentations in both north and south of the river locations.

Dermclub for 2019 has been designed to cover the “big ticket” items in dermatology. Dermclub lectures will include both fundamental information and more advanced concepts. Packed with practical advice and the latest innovations, every participant will leave with knowledge that can be applied on the first day back in the clinic.

DermClub is a complimentary offering to the veterinary profession and is made possible thanks to our industry partners who value continuing education and support this series.

To register your attendance at one of the DermClub events below, please click on the relevant RSVP button and follow the prompts.  Registration for each DermClub evening close on the Monday prior to DermClub taking place on the Wednesday evening.
