Dr. David Williams


David Williams qualified as a vet from the University of Cambridge in 1988 knowing even at that stage that he wanted to devote his professional life to veterinary ophthalmology. He undertook initial clinical training at the Animal Health Trust under Dr Keith Barnett then moving to the Royal Veterinary College for a PhD before returning to Cambridge where he runs the ophthalmology clinic, although he also visits numerous clinics providing an ambulatory ophthalmology referral service. David is thus used to performing ophthalmic surgery in a referral environment but also understands the challenges and opportunities facing vets keen to do ophthalmic surgery in their own practices.

This webinar will be conducted via Zoom and CPD certificates will be issued to all those who attend live. The session will be approximately 90 minutes and will include the opportunity for Q&A.
