Exam Room Training: 7 Steps to Fantastic Appointments Course

What goes on in the exam room, often stays in the exam room.

Which is shocking really, because there is no other room in a vet hospital that has a more fundamental impact on the outcomes for patients, team members and the practice. What's even more shocking is the lack of good training that vets and nurses/technicians receive on exam room skills.

This best selling online course, written and produced by Dr Dave Nicol and Dr Andy Roark, changes that and delivers incredibly valuable and cost effective training for anyone who works in the exam room. 

(Note: Clicking on the links above will take you to the "Uncharted" website, of my course co-author Dr Andy Roark, where the course is hosted and payments made. You will not be billed or registered for any other service - despite how it may appear - you have my word. )
