BSAVA courses which are not formally accredited

This area of study is intended particularly for veterinary surgeons who wish to apply for inclusion in the RCVS List of Advanced Practitioners. Professional key skills are important for all veterinary professionals, however, and any BSAVA member (veterinary surgeon or veterinary nurse) who would like to develop these skills further is welcome to participate.

This Professional Key Skills CPD is a BSAVA Member benefit and is not available to non-members. If you are a BSAVA member and would like to access this CPD please e mail courses@bsava.com
