Education

AFSCAN scholarship

Distance learning

Distance learning and point of care information will enable the continuing development of practitioners in Consortium countries and "fill the gaps" between the events and conferences so that the benefits of the program will be longer lasting than the inevitably sporadic conferences and events.

All AFSCAN participants are entitled to free membership of VetFolio and able to access Vetstream Canis and Felis thanks to generous sponsorship by KRUUSE.

Vetstream, the British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA) and UK charity Computers4Africa to deliver the program, providing access to a range of CE resources, including Vetstream's Canis and Felis point of care information; the full range of content of NAVC and AAHA's VetFolio, and the proceedings from WSAVA Congresses on computers and internet connected devices donated by UK veterinary practices and repurposed by Computers4Africa.
