This is another sign of VAHL's active support of young veterinarians, but also of continuous support and coaching of its course participants.
Since April 2020, VAHL has been organizing regular free webinars for veterinarians and TFA , in order to make continuing education possible for everyone, even in times of pandemic. In addition, all scheduled academic continuing education courses will take place under new "Covid concept", i.e. e-learning - Zoom Classrooms and hands-on practice days in small groups to ensure hygene regulations.
With this, CCRP courses have taken place in October in Australia, Portugal and Spain. The VMPT (Veterinary Physiotherapist) also started in August in Munich and is currently taking place with the 2nd module.
