Professional

Be the best Vet you can be. Commit to lifelong continuing professional development that will improve your competence and confidence and enrich your career.

Life’s busy. Your ability to participate in CPD fluctuates according to the multiple demands on your time. Recognising that, the CVE offers innovative and stimulating courses, both face-to-face and online, that suit your personal time and financial constraints. They range from webinars to conferences to 10-month Distance Education online programs and much more in between. One thing they have in common; all will challenge you to grow as a vet.

"I have particularly benefited from, and always enjoy, the C&Ts that are published so regularly and of such high quality. I’ve never been able to suggest an improvement that wasn’t already in the pipeline—now that’s the CVE being ahead of the game.

In a nutshell: Join in, keep up and enjoy the company. The CVE is the one place where ‘vitnery’ matters more than the bottom line.”
