Film Nights

These informal CPD sessions will usually be run on the last Tuesday or Wednesday every other month from 7:30pm - 9:00pm at our hospital in Ringwood. They will involve a film reading session and open discussion based on some cases seen at SCVS. Vets are also encouraged to bring their own radiographs of interesting or challenging cases for group discussion. These meetings are run by our radiologists. Although the meetings are free, numbers are limited to allow delegate participation. Places will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Light refreshments will be provided.

Next film night will be held on: Please check back for January date
