We would like to thank and acknowledge the British Veterinary Poultry Association for their help in compiling these resources; a mix of videos, webinars and text resources. These are suggested resources, students should have previously agreed learning objectives with their tutors, and the resources should be used only if they align. It is not compulsory for students to complete all resources.

The British Veterinary Poultry Association have created a suggested virtual poultry EMS worksheet that can be completed over 2 weeks. The individual resources can also be accessed by the links below. These resources have not been developed by the RCVS and we do not endorse any third party advertisements that may appear on external websites.
