Introduction to the UK veterinary profession – a key CPD course for overseas vets and VNs

We will be holding our popular CPD course for overseas vets and nurses on Monday 27 and Tuesday 28 November at our offices in London.

Jointly organised by us and the Veterinary Defence Society (VDS) and in conjunction with British Veterinary Association (BVA), this two-day course provides overseas graduates with the key information and skills needed to practise in the UK, as well as helping them understand their legal duties as veterinary professionals.

The course is aimed at overseas-qualified veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses during their first two years working in the UK, as well as those considering working here, and the overall aim is to reduce the risk of a concern being raised against them, improve their experience of working in the UK and advance their communication skills. 

27 November - A master class in communication skills 

Cost: £160

28 November - Key information and skills needed to practise as a vet and veterinary nurse in the UK

Cost: Free to attend

To register to attend one or both of the days please visit our Eventbrite page.

The programme for the course will be confirmed shortly.
