Course summary

This comprehensive and stimulating programme is designed to be practically relevant for the small animal practitioner. The course will provide delegates with a thorough understanding of the anatomy, development and physiology of the eye and will cover the full spectrum of ocular diseases seen in the domestic species. The principles of inherited ocular disease, ocular pharmacology and therapeutics, ocular pathology and ocular surgery will be discussed.

The course is delivered by Improve International and assessed by the International School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies (ISVPS).

The Small Animal Ophthalmology 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.
