“The VetBloom anesthesia course spearheaded by Dr. Driessen incorporates is a massive amount of collaboration of veterinarians and specialized anesthesia technicians from around the country to bring this course to our willing minds. The course promises a comprehensive view of the anesthetic event and provides the tools necessary to enhance technical skills and understanding of underlying physiological processes in our patients. This is a course I would expect to be offered to veterinarians but is delivered in a way that trusts our skills and experience as technicians already performing advanced anesthesia in the field, and this collaborative teaching method has continued with our peer groups online and outside of class in small study sessions. My confidence in patient assessment and anesthetic planning has been amplified solely based on the subject material and open format of this course, and I would recommend anyone interested in furthering their anesthesia knowledge to look no further than this course.”

“Wow. Just wow! Outstanding instructors from world class Veterinary Schools in the United States teaching veterinary technicians small animal anesthesia! Interactive, hands on, one on one mentoring, in depth learning and discussion. I have taken a lot of courses and received several degrees and licenses at major Universities and this course far exceeds any course I’ve ever taken anywhere. The material wasn’t simplified because we were veterinary technicians and every topic was explored comprehensively. The course work online and in person was challenging, interesting and information was shared freely on all topics. Truly, an invaluable course for anyone interested in growing their knowledge base and practice in small animal anesthesia. I will be sad when the course is over! Made some great friends and connections in the veterinary field across the United States. I will use the resources provided to us over and over again. Your education in small animal anesthesia is not complete without this course!”
