I've been at VetSim at Nottingham Uni this week. Jen drove us up on Tuesday and we came back on Friday (I'm writing this at home after the week).It was a really good course, completely different to Vet-Medlink because it was a practical course, not lecture based.
When we got there they gave us scrubs and a stethoscope, I bought the upgraded one with 2 tubes and more interchangeable heads.
We had an introduction to VetSim then a keyhole surgery lecture with the same man that did The Edge at Vet-Medlink. Keyhole is better because its a shorter recovery time and less invasive, but there is more risk of a problem as you can only see such a small space, and its a longer operation.
In the evening we had an ethics lecture which made you think quite about different situations, then we had a lecture about the Use of the Stethoscope until 11 with a lot of information about different heart beats in different animals - the one thing I thought was strange, was that we didn't touch our stethoscopes during the whole lecture!
