Details

We will be holding our popular CPD course for overseas vets and nurses on Monday 18 and Tuesday 19 June at the Midland Hotel in Manchester.

Jointly organised by us and the Veterinary Defence Society (VDS) and in conjunction with British Veterinary Association (BVA), this two-day course provides overseas graduates with the key information and skills needed to practise in the UK, as well as helping them understand their legal duties as veterinary professionals.

The course is aimed at overseas-qualified veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses during their first two years working in the UK, as well as those considering working here. 

The course is divided into two days. 

Working in UK veterinary practice: key information for vets and vet nurses- 18 June 2018

  • The day covers how the UK veterinary professions are organised, with information about jobs, employment rights and the support available if things go wrong.
  • Talks are given by representatives from the RCVS, VDS Training, BVA, British Veterinary Nursing Association and the Vetlife charity.
  • The course also aims to help delegates understand their legal duties as a veterinary professional in the UK, which can vary significantly from their own country, along with expected standards of professional conduct.
