Course summary

This programme will appeal to vets with one- or two-years’ clinical experience who want to develop their clinical skills. As well as preparing you for further clinical training, the diploma will also develop your skills for a primary care setting.

The diploma lasts 12 months and encompasses several pathways, including small animal practice; you will pick one pathway for study. There are two compulsory units for each pathway and each unit carries equal weighting.

The goal is for students to consolidate and build on the clinical knowledge and skills gained from their undergraduate study and prior professional practice (eg the RCVS Professional Development Phase) in an area of veterinary medicine. Teaching will be delivered through a combination of directed clinical training, face-to-face presentations and seminars, online resources and self-directed learning. You will also receive training in evidence-based veterinary medicine.

Careers

Graduates could go on to study for a master's by research or taught master's programme (e.g. MSc in Clinical Veterinary Science, MVetMed/PhD), or to residency specialist training. Career destinations could include general practice, academia or specialist veterinary practice.
