Veterinary Bioscience Institute (VBI) launches surgical webinar series

Veterinary Bioscience Institute, a leading provider of surgical and biomedical education services, announced today that it will lunch surgical webinar series in addition to the online surgical courses and video library already introduced in 2009.

Online PR News – 23-January-2010 – – The Veterinary Bioscience Institute has announced this month that it will begin offering its highly sought-after online video interactive surgery and anesthesia courses via a webinar series starting February 3rd, 2010. The series will begin with a two-hour session and will be conducted monthly thereafter. Additional webinars will be added upon participants demand.

“These webinars are the first of its kind because every technique is presented through videos while the faculty simultaneously describes the details of that technique”, said COO Dr. Szczepan Baran.

“The webinar system is great,” said instructor Dr. Marcel Perret-Gentil, “we make sure to limit class sizes so participants will have an opportunity to interact with the instructors.” Students will interact by posting questions throughout the webinar which will be answered by one of the instructors. Students will also have the ability to chat with the instructors after the webinar.

VBI’s webinars are short versions of their online courses. These webinars enable VBI to reach a globally dispersed laboratory animal science and biomedical audience, provided they have a high speed internet connection. Students who attend these webinars earn continuing education (CE) credits towards the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science, Canadian Association for Laboratory Animal Science and the Academy of Surgical Research certifications. The majority of the webinars will also be approved for CE credits for veterinarians and veterinary technicians by the American Association of Veterinary State Boards Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE).

”This training format makes it convenient for anyone, anywhere in the world to have access to the premier Veterinary Bioscience Institute’s content and experts,” adds Perret-Gentil.
