Securos University Continuing Education 2020 Program

By MWI Animal Health |

Our mission is to exceed your expectations for continuing education (CE). Since our founding, we’ve helped veterinarians build their skills through clinically-focused wet labs conducted by recognized specialists using state-of-the-art, quality instrumentation.

And because we always gather feedback, we continually refine our offerings to ensure you’re getting exactly what you need when you trust us with your time. Whether in one of our hands-on labs or through an online course, our dynamic faculty will share practical insights to help expand your surgical knowledge. 

8:1 Student/Teacher Ratio

We understand the importance of one-on-one time with instructors. To maximize each attendee’s time with our expert surgeons, Securos University 2020 events maintain at least an 8:1 student/teacher ratio. More instructors mean attendees spend more time learning practical and relevant knowledge from certified surgical experts. 

Online Lectures

Our pre-recorded lectures are available on-demand through our partnership with VetBloom. The online lecture consists of four to five modules. Each module includes a 50 minute video and a five question quiz to earn CE. Attendees are granted access to the online lectures 30 days before the wet lab. This gives everyone ample time to complete the required modules at their convenience. Attendees are also able to review sections multiple times before and after the wet lab. To provide a customized learning experience, the lead instructor presents a quick review of the online material at the beginning of each lab based on the quiz results. 

Hands-On Labs

Practice makes perfect at Securos University. We design our courses to provide the most hands-on experience possible. During our 4-hour wet labs, each attendee takes lead on one surgery utilizing a canine cadaver knee and assists on a second. The TPLO and TTA courses feature 8-hour wet labs, allowing each attendee time for initial practice on a bone model then practice as lead surgeon on two cadaver knees with an assist on two additional surgeries. 

Post-Lab Support

For the veterinarians that wish for additional practice at home, Securos Surgical offers a free practice cadaver and supplies with qualifying purchases. Securos also offers complimentary procedural support from our surgical experts. We encourage every attendee to submit pre-op planning measurements on practice or live cases, as well as post-op radiographs for surgical critique. 

On-Site Radiographs

Practice makes perfect, so Securos University 2020 events include on-site radiographs for cadaver pre-op measurements and post-op radiographic critique. The TTA and TPLO courses feature two rounds of cadaver work, and each round includes time for the instructor’s evaluation of post-op radiographs. This maximizes the learning experience for each attendee, allowing them to refine their surgical technique in real-time. 

VetRay Technology by Sedecal provides on-site x-ray equipment and support, performing over 150 views at each Securos University 2020 event. They are the world’s largest manufacturer of x-ray equipment and now offer the best selection in digital detector technology.
