Dear colleagues,

We want to share with you the best experience that we had in LEARNING ANAESTHESIAAMVAC collaborates with VASTA (The Veterinary Anaesthesia School for Technicians and Veterinarians) since 2017. VASTA Romania/Bulgaria begins its second course in Romania with the FIRST MODULE in BUCHAREST for Veterinarians and Technicians.


The Veterinary Anaesthesia School for Technicians and Veterinarians was founded 2007 by Veterinary Anaesthesia Services International (VAS) in Switzerland. Due to its extraordinary success, it was invited to expand to Romania. The aim of the school is provision of a sound and well-founded education in Anaesthesia to Veterinary Technicians and Veterinarians.

VASTA delivers a structured Continuing Education within a larger clinical context and is well inserted in the international network of Anaesthesia experts within ECVAA/AVA/AVTA. The growing VASTA family consists of VATs all over the World and provides an exchange platform between trained Veterinarians, Nurses and Specialists.

Faculty and Staff

The main teacher is an internationally recognized expert in Veterinary Anaesthesia, a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia (ECVAA) and the founder of VASTA, Dr. Peter Kronen. He has vast experience with teaching, particularly VASTA is in it‘s 13th year now and expanding rapidly in a global fashion.

Contents of the modules comprises:

  • Physiology and Pathophysiology as related to Anaesthesia
  • Pharmacology
  • Anaesthetic Techniques

The main focus of the course lays in the practical application of anaesthesia knowledge. We offer expertise and knowledge to personnel in veterinary practices and other institutions to help make anaesthesia and analgesia safer and better for animals in our care. The course contributes to improve professional handling and care during the surgical intervention and the perioperative period.
