Integrate veterinary acupuncture into your practice to achieve better patient outcomes
Seize the opportunity! Expand your knowledge, competence and confidence, and gain mastery of your clinical passion.

All DE programs are mentored by leading veterinary experts who will provide individual feedback and advice on completion of each monthly module. Each module may include written content, technique videos, self-reflections, quizzes and online submission of monthly assignments. Maximise the opportunity to expand and consolidate your learning by participating in the tutor moderated group discussion forums and attending the case-based and/or practical workshop/s optional for most courses.

Note: Due to the continuing uncertainty of COVID-19 we cannot guarantee that all face to face workshops will go ahead in 2021. While the CVE will do everything within its power to run the workshops, where this is not possible, and where feasible, the CVE will work with its tutors to provide a virtual workshop alternative.

TimeOnline is quality online education delivered by veterinary experts in short, manageable timeframes.

Build in-demand skills in key clinical areas. Engage with your tutor/s and other participants through an active discussion forum. The programs are further enhanced by concise core notes, video presentations, case studies, images, useful links and interactive quizzes to test your knowledge and round out the program. Earn 10+ CPD points with completion of each TimeOnline course.

TimeOnline OnDemand are short online continuing education programs that you can start and finish at a time that suits you.

Dairy Diagnostic Dollars: Getting The Best Value WebinarPLUS

This webinar will cover how to prepare for, and take, samples for key diseases in calves, heifers and cows. It will also cover what testing can be done on the bulk milk and tests that can be carried out cow-side or in-house for a quicker, cheaper turn around.

Avian Paediatric Emergencies WebinarPLUS

Thursday, 23 September 2021

Speaker/s: Bob Doneley




Hand-reared birds, especially parrots, are commonly seen in practices that see avian patients. Mistakes in hand-rearing and husbandry frequently lead to health problems which, if not addressed quickly, can rapidly lead to deterioration and even death. This webinar seeks to provide the clinician with an understanding of the needs of the emergent avian neonate, and information on how to address these problems.
