Course summary

This programme will leave you fully equipped to understand and treat the more varied cases and species. Exotic pets often fill veterinary surgeons with dread as they come through the surgery door. This programme will assist you in consolidating your knowledge of exotic medicine and surgery and help you to develop an informed clinical approach to the exotic patient.

The programme includes taught sessions on all key areas and promises to bring you fully up to date with all of the current and emerging issues. The programme includes fourteen modules and in addition a dedicated Programme Tutor will provide support throughout the entire programme ensuring you are well placed for your examination.

The Exotic Animal Practice programme is provided by Improve International in collaboration with the International School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies (ISVPS) and Harper Adams University.

Complete the one-year programme (all modules) and achieve the General Practitioner Certificate (GPCert) by passing the required assessments with the International School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies (ISVPS).

Continue on to the Postgraduate Certificate (PgC) that combines the GPCert clinical studies, plus reflective practice, and successful completion of the Advanced Practitioner Module with Harper Adams University. The PgC represents Masters Level 7 within the Quality Assurance Agency’s framework for higher and further education. It provides 60 transferable academic credits.

After successfully completing your PgC, you may apply for the RCVS Advanced Practitioner Status. This is subject to meeting all of the other entry requirements set out by the RCVS in the Applicant Guidance Notes.

The Programme Tutor will discuss which learning option you wish to progress and advise the necessary requirements to support you.
