Willows Clinical Club – an Invitation to join us for an interactive evening
An entertaining series of FREE informal, interactive Clinical Club evening meetings for practitioners.
Format of the evening
The evenings, which run from 8.00pm till 9.30pm, centred around a steeplechase of several case studies which are presented for small groups of 4 to 6 vets to discuss amongst themselves first for about 45 minutes, followed by further analysis and discussion with our Specialists for an additional 45 minutes or so. The types of cases presented vary from one evening to another, encompassing orthopaedics, ophthalmology, neurology, internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, critical care, anaesthesia, oncology, cardiology and dermatology. As well as having discussion regarding the case material presented, if you have a relevant tricky case you want some advice about, just ask!
The numbers are strictly limited to 20 delegates per evening, and you must register for these events online.
Refreshments and biscuits will be provided, but if you are a hungry type, it is recommended that you either eat before you come or bring a sandwich with you!

FREE Film Reading Evening Sessions
Willows evening film reading sessions give you the chance to improve your radiology skills through contact with board certified radiologists here at Willows Referral Service. The evening sessions start at 8pm on the first Tuesday of each month (except December, January and February). Films will be presented for you to observe, and you are invited to write a short film report on each case. The radiologists will then go through the pertinent findings with you in intimate small group sessions.
How the evenings will flow
A series of X-ray cases will be available to examine from 8.00pm, and it is expected that those attending will take the time to review the radiographs and be prepared to critique the film quality, discuss their radiological findings, give a list of reasonable differentials, and recommend further studies as required. Guidance will be given on how to formulate a good quality radiological report.
At around 9.00pm a member (or members) of our Diagnostic Imaging team will then go through the evening’s cases. The evening typically finishes by around 10.00pm – 10.30pm, although this might be variable depending upon the case discussion.
Refreshments will be provided, but if you are a hungry type, it is recommended that you either eat before you come or bring a sandwich with you!
