New distance learning Small Animal Medicine Postgraduate Certificate

Image result for New distance learning Small Animal Medicine Postgraduate CertificateImprove International has announced that it will launch a distance learning version of its Small Animal Medicine Postgraduate Certificate (PgC) programme, in January 2019.

The company says that the 20 module medicine programme, covering all of the major body systems of cats and dog, combines the latest thinking in small animal medicine with its world-class learning resources to ensure that delegates’ learning experience online gives the same high-quality learning as the attendance programme.

Improve says it aims to offer a route for veterinary surgeons who don’t have the time to participate in an attendance programme or who work in countries where this type of training is not available, the opportunity to study for a recognised postgraduate qualification.

Delegates signing up for the programme will have a module tutor – an RCVS or ECVIM/ACVIM Small Animal Internal Medicine Diploma holder – and a dedicated programme tutor who works with individual delegates to ensure they are supported throughout the programme.

Improve says the course includes interactive and engaging modules, together with real-life case studies, presentations, written notes, interactive quizzes and exercises.

Dr Alison Babington MRCVS, Business Coordinator at Improve said: “The pressures on veterinary professionals today have never been more intense and many of us struggle to find the work-life balance which is so important for our well-being. Unfortunately, these pressures often preclude many vets from undertaking the type of postgraduate training which could give them additional job satisfaction and enhance both their career prospects and the profitability of their practice.

“It has been our ambition for some time to offer some of our flagship programmes online and, in creating the Distance Learning Small Animal Medicine programme, we drew on the experience of the latest online platforms.

“This new Distance Learning Programme offers a high quality interactive, engaging Small Animal Medicine learning experience which will be fun to study and a far cry from the days of simply reading text online. It will be accessible to vets working anywhere in the world and we’re very proud to be able to offer a high level programme via this learning route
