Knowledge
Having completed the course, the participant must be able to
• Define, identify and discuss veterinary methodology and paraclinical tools in systematised reflective clinical decision making in companion animal clinical practice specifically within clinical cardiology
• Explain the pathophysiologic mechanism involved in cardiac remodelling and development of congestive heart failure in the companion animal cardiology patient
• Explain, reflect about and demonstrate overview of systematic clinical approach to the companion animal cardiovascular patient at an advanced level
• List appropriate differential diagnoses according to the signs of cardiovascular diseases and the development of disease

Skills
Within the area of companion animal clinical cardiology the graduate must be able to
• Apply the quantitative and qualitative methodologies such as performing and applying clinical cardiovascular examination and assess cardiovascular size and function and tools as well as master relevant skills such as auscultation, clinical ECG, thoracic radiology and conventional trans-thoracic echocardiography
• Interpret, assess and reflect on collected patient data in order to localize the lesion and cause of cardiovascular disease.
• Discriminate between cardiac and non-cardiac disorders, discriminate between heart disease and left/right congestive heart failure
• Make clinical decisions, arrive at a diagnosis and consider evidence based scientific approaches in order to plan and administer further appropriate diagnostics, patient therapy and management
