Details

This CPD course was organised for overseas veterinary surgeons and nurses and is an introduction to the UK veterinary professions.  

Jointly organised by the RCVS and the Veterinary Defence Society (VDS), 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.

Who can attend?

The course is aimed at overseas-qualified veterinary surgeons and nurses during their first 2 years of working in the UK, as well as those who are considering working here.

In October, we were delighted to welcome vet surgeons and vet nurses from across 14 countries to the event. 

 
Covered in the course: 
Day One - 'Working in UK veterinary practice: key information for vets and vet nurses'
  • The day covered how the UK veterinary professions are organised, with information about jobs, employment rights and the support available if things go wrong.
  • Talks were given by representatives from the RCVS, VDS Training, BVA, British Veterinary Nursing Association and the Vetlife charity.
  • The course aimed 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.

 

Further Overseas CPD courses will be held in 2020, dates to be confirmed.
