The registration deadline has been extended as this course will definitely take place.

Please be aware that there are only a limited number of BEVA spaces available.


Nowadays most equine practices have an endoscope at their disposal, which however might not get used as much as it could.  This two-day practical course is designed to provide vets from equine practice with the theoretical and especially the practical skills to perform most routine diagnostic and some therapeutic endoscopic procedures currently used in equine practice.  A panel of international experts who have dedicated a significant proportion of their careers to equine endoscopy are involved with this course and will be sharing invaluable tips and tricks.  The first day will focus on the upper/lower respiratory tract and sinoscopy and on the second day the gastrointestinal and urogenital tracts will be covered.

The following highly illustrated lectures (in English, no translation but with Swedish moderation) will be held in the mornings:  

  • Diagnostic Nasal & Upper Respiratory Endoscopy
  • Sinus Approaches & Sinoscopy   
  • Lower Respiratory Tract (incl. tracheal wash & bronchoalveolar lavage)
  • The Guttural Pouches
  • Overground Respiratory Endoscopy
  • Oesophagus, Stomach & Duodenum
  • Interactive Gastroscopy – when do you need to treat?      
  • Genital Tract – Diagnostic, Surgical & Interventional Endoscopy
  • Urinary Tract Endoscopy
  • Clinical Endoscopy Case-Discussions

In the afternoons, the 7 hours small group sessions (3 – 5 attendees/endoscope) will provide attendees with plenty of opportunities to further develop their hands-on skills on live horses and specimens under the supervision of the experts.  Each attendee will rotate through the following practical stations:

  • Upper Respiratory Tract incl. Guttural Pouches
  • Lower Respiratory Tract incl. Tracheal Wash & Bronchoalveolar Lavage 
  • Overground Endoscopy 
  • Sinus Approaches & Sinoscopy
  • Oral Endoscopy
  • Gastroscopy

The course fee includes lunches at a restaurant, coffee/tea breaks, a wine & cheese reception, extensive course notes and a certificate of attendance. Attendees can choose to only attend the lectures (= Lectures Only) on this course or can register for the entire course (= Lectures & Practical Sessions).  Early course registration via the VetPD website  is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available.

This course is suitable for RCVS Modules:  B-EP.3; C –E.1; C-E.2; C –E.3; C-E.15; C–E.16
