ACVIM Brain Camp Online Part II


Course Overview

In an effort to continue resident training, we have put together two additional neurology modules to form Brain Camp Online Part II. This course will begin with large animal neurology, including equine and production animal neurology, and will finish with neuropathology with a focus on spinal cord diseases. 

Each of the modules will consist of didactic presentations and Q&A recorded during the live course. Content is available on demand, where learners can take the course at their convenience.  


ACVIM / ECVIM-CA / ECVN candidates: $180.00 per module
ACVIM / ECVIM-CA / ECVN member Diplomates, ESVN members: $225.00 per module
Non-members: $325.00 per module

On demand content is available through:

Large Animal Neurology: September 2, 2025
Neuropathology Part II:
 September 20, 2023
