Veterinary medicine is a rapidly evolving discipline, comprising a wide range of specialist areas. Research in veterinary medicine is directly relevant to the improvement of health and welfare of domestic animal species and the protection of public health.
The R(D)SVS has an international reputation, and its clinical services - Hospital for Small Animals (dog and cat and exotics, zoo and wildlife) and Large Animal Hospital (equine and livestock) - are among the most influential centres for clinical care in the UK and Europe. It is best placed to advance the skills of the sector due to the skills in primary, secondary and tertiary care medicine and surgery, and its extensive research activities in all aspects of veterinary medicine.
Veterinary practitioners are under pressure to maintain high standards of practice while also keeping abreast of the latest developments. In response to the increasing requirement for support in developing advanced clinical skills, this new distance learning programme is aimed primarily, but not exclusively, at veterinarians in practice.
The modular, portfolio approach allows the greatest flexibility to meet the needs of the modern practitioner. The goal is to provide the student with the skills and knowledge required to be highly effective practitioners and to enable them to act as leaders and mentors within the veterinary community.
This programme provides graduates with the scientific knowledge and practical skills to carry out the work of advanced veterinary practitioners.
On completion of this programme, students will be able to:
- Demonstrate they have acquired knowledge about advanced veterinary clinical research and developments
- Demonstrate they have acquired specific veterinary skills applicable to an advanced practitioner
- Understand and demonstrate how an evidence-based medicine approach can be applied in a range of practical situations
- Interpret and communicate scientific results and information (in research and other forms of social debate) across other related scientific disciplines and to other stakeholders
- Enhanced promotion within the veterinary clinical practice sector.
- Entry point for academic clinical positions coming from the private practice sector.
- Veterinary-based industries particularly feed and pharmaceutical manufacturers.
