In veterinary medicine we are often required to render animals unconscious to permit procedures (anaesthesia), we can reduce the pain an animal is suffering (analgesia) so in veterinary management of animals, anaesthesia and analgesia have vital importance in improving animal welfare as well as permitting the ongoing developments in medical and surgical advances. Knowledge and advances in anaesthesia over the last 20 years have been considerable.
The University of Edinburgh is offering this unique opportunity for an entirely online MSc to study these advances, during which students can gain knowledge and understanding in the equipment drugs and techniques associated with anaesthesia and analgesia. We will provide students with a knowledge of current anaesthetic and analgesic practices, knowledge of how anaesthetic equipment functions and how to use it effectively. Optional courses allow students to study anaesthesia and analgesia in their species of choice and also to study more advanced techniques in anaesthesia and analgesia such as ventilation and cardiovascular interventions.
Degree in veterinary medicine or veterinary nursing. Education to degree level (minimum 2:1 degree or international equivalent) in a related subject with suitable postgraduate experience may also be accepted.
