Overview

Veterinary medicine is a rapidly evolving discipline, comprising a wide range of specialist areas. Research in veterinary medicine is directly relevant to the improvement of health and welfare of domestic animal species and the protection of public health.

Research reputation 

The R(D)SVS has an international reputation, and its clinical services - Hospital for Small Animals (dog and cat and exotics, zoo and wildlife) and Large Animal Hospital (equine and livestock) - are among the most influential centres for clinical care in the UK and Europe. It is best placed to advance the skills of the sector due to the skills in primary, secondary and tertiary care medicine and surgery, and its extensive research activities in all aspects of veterinary medicine.

Who is this Advanced Clinical Practice (Online Learning) programme from The University of Edinburgh  for?

Veterinary practitioners are under pressure to maintain high standards of practice while also keeping abreast of the latest developments. In response to the increasing requirement for support in developing advanced clinical skills, this new distance learning programme is aimed primarily, but not exclusively, at veterinarians in practice.

How will I learn?

The modular, portfolio approach allows the greatest flexibility to meet the needs of the modern practitioner. The goal is to provide you with the skills and knowledge required to be a highly effective practitioner and to enable you to act as a leader and mentor within the veterinary community.

Career opportunities

  • Enhanced promotion within the veterinary clinical practice sector.
  • Entry point for academic clinical positions coming from the private practice sector.
  • Veterinary-based industries particularly feed and pharmaceutical manufacturers.

Programme Structure

  • The programme is modular in structure, offering a flexible student-centred approach to the choice of courses studied. You can choose to take a particular species track in the elective course, i.e. courses focussed on companion animals, exotic zoo and wildlife, equine or production animals. Equally, you can choose to take a mixed-practice approach by selecting courses that meet your individual professional needs.
  • Each year will consist of three 11-week terms structured into two blocks of five weeks of study with a week in between for independent study and reflection. One block of five weeks will equate to 10 credits of course material. This framework is designed to fit in with the part-time nature of the programme, giving you time to reflect on your learning and lessening the impact of the additional requirements that studying will place on your working life.
