This is a seven-session course to help senior veterinary students and veterinarians prepare for the North American Veterinary Licensing Exam (NAVLE®).
Organized by species, each 2-hour session will highlight the "Top 20" diseases and conditions encountered by practitioners in the US and Canada. All sessions will include multiple-choice questions similar to those that candidates will encounter on the NAVLE®.
The questions will lead to a brief discussion and summary of each condition in a distilled format.
We will cover NAVLE® study plans and exam strategies and provide strategies for reviewing topics not covered in the "Top 20s." The last session will include a mock examination.
Through the course, participants will get:
Week 1 (Sunday, September 20): Strategy for NAVLE® Preparation; Review of Public Health, Calculations, Toxicology, Epidemiology & Other Topics
Week 2 (Sunday, September 27): Bovine Top 20 NAVLE® Review
Week 3 (Sunday, October 4): Pigs, Sheep, Goats, Poultry, Pet Birds, and Other Small Animals Review
Week 4 (Sunday, October 11): Equine Top 20 NAVLE® review
Week 5 (Sunday, October 18): Feline Top 20 NAVLE® review
Week 6 (Sunday, October 25): Canine Top 20 NAVLE® review
Week 7 (Sunday, November 1): Mock Exam & Last Minute Tips

After the first real-time session, a registrant may withdraw due to special circumstances and receive prorated credit towards a future VIN course. These requests will be handled on an individual basis. The amount of the prorated credit will be determined based on 65% of the time remaining in the course at the time of withdrawal. It is not possible to withdraw retroactively.
