Hi arwood, great I am sure you will enjoy it!
Much of the course is in the classroom where all sorts of hedgehoggy things are talked about, you get a tour round the actual hospital, and the practicals are looking at a hedgehog poo sample under the microscope, and giving fluids to hedgehogs, which are dead ones! They had three which had died at the hospital and are used for the course. I didn’t do this just watched as its not something I can anticipate me doing for some time.
I don’t think there is anything you need to do/know beforehand, you will learn lots! You get a book with all the info in but I also took pen and notebook to make any notes.
