Unisvet Executive Master in Veterinary Ophthalmology offers practitioners eager to improve their understanding of ophthalmic cases the skills necessary to interpret the findings of an ophthalmic exam and confidently make a list differential diagnosis. It also offers the knowledge base necessary to discuss with pet-owners further diagnostics and the possible treatment options, including referral, when appropriate.

The aim of this course is to offer you a wide overview that starts with the anatomy of the eye and expands to include the interpretation of a clinical presentation and a variety of available treatments of eye problems. The goal is to prepare you to confidently receive eye problems in primary care practice without anxiety or fear.

The course instructors are composed of internationally recognized experts in veterinary ophthalmology and related veterinary sciences. They have come together through the Executive Master’s program at Unisvet to offer a world-class experience.

The Executive Ophthalmology Master is composed of a thorough and intensive program divided into 6 modules, each lasting 1 week (5 days), spread over a 2-year period. The first module of the Executive Master will be delivered online on-demand.

The master is mainly theoretical with a focus on practical ophthalmology, and it has the added advantage that it offers hand-on training on selected aspects of the ophthalmic exam, microscopy of ocular diseases, and selected adnexal surgeries (e.g. selected eyelid surgeries, selected treatment of SCCEDs and enucleation surgery) with an entry level on corneal work for those with an interest in understanding certain aspects of microsurgery.

David Williams
MA, Med, VetMD, PhD, Dipl. ECAWBM CertVOphthal, CertWEL, FHEA, FRCVS Relatore
Before he graduated from Cambridge Veterinary School in 1988, David already knew that he wanted to concentrate on ophthalmology in his professional career. Seeing practice in Solihull, West Midlands, John Heath CertVOphthal MRCVS senior partner in the 608 Veterinary Group captivated David with his enthusiasm for the subject. Before graduating David gained experience with Dr Keith Barnett at the Animal Health Trust, Newmarket, an internationally recognised expert in the field. After qualifying David worked as assistant veterinary surgeon and then resident in veterinary ophthalmology at the Trust, before gaining his certificate in veterinary ophthalmology and moving to the Royal Veterinary College to undertake a PhD investigating the pathology of chronic superficial keratitis in the German Shepherd dog. After gaining his PhD David stayed at the RVC, as resident in clinical pharmacology with a particular interest, perhaps not surprisingly, in ocular pharmacology. After two years researching the practical and theoretical aspects of ocular drug delivery, he moved back to the Animal Health Trust for a period as Clinical Investigative Ophthalmologist before completing the circle, as it were, and moving back to Cambridge. There he completed a doctorate in veterinary medicine working on the pathogenesis of age related cataracts across species and also gained his fellowship of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons for studies on ocular disease in farmed halibut, given the interest he has in eyes of exotic species and wildlife. Here he is now Associate Lecturer in Veterinary Ophthalmology in the Department of Clinical Veterinary Medicine, a position he combines with teaching at St John’s College, where he is fellow, Director of Studies in Veterinary Medicine and College Lecturer in Pathology. David’s other passion is animal welfare and he is a diplomate of the European College of Animal Welfare and Behaviour Medicine.
