Course summary

The diagnosis and management of dental and oral disease represents a major component of small animal practice.

This NEW modular programme will provide a thorough, informed case-based approach to such cases. Through lectures, case discussions and practical sessions you will learn how to approach the dog, cat and exotic patient presenting with the various manifestations of oral pathology in a logical and scientific manner.

Our Small Animal Dentistry and Oral Surgery PgC programme consists of fourteen modules and is delivered using a combination of lectures and highly practical sessions. The practical components of this modular programme bring together ultrasonography, radiology and CT/MRI to ensure you will increase your skills, knowledge and confidence in dealing with complex dental cases in practice.

The Dentistry and Oral Surgery 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.
