Hampshire’s Southern Counties Veterinary Specialists (SCVS) has announced a comprehensive CPD programme spanning the rest of 2023.
The programme includes a variety of free-to-attend and paid-for sessions covering specialist topics from diagnostic imaging and ophthalmic emergencies to practical nursing skills and using echocardiography to aid day-to-day decision making in practices.
The sessions are run monthly across various specialist disciplines and, as well as building on attendees’ skills and knowledge, the hours will count towards annual CPD requirements.
The launch of the programme has been facilitated by the addition of a new lecture theatre during SCVS’s recent expansion.
Supported by hospital owners IVC Evidensia, the redevelopment also included the addition of a new reception building and operating theatre complex at the hospital.
Stephen Collins, SCVS hospital director and IVC Evidensia’s national cardiology lead, said: “We’re proud to announce one of the UK’s most comprehensive CPD programmes and share the vast knowledge that our specialist team has with the rest of the veterinary community.
“Our programme is packed full of informative and practical sessions that every vet and vet nurse can benefit from, whether that’s specialist skill development or improving everyday advice and practices in clinic.”
A full list of CPD events is available online.
SCVS is fully operational and open 24/7 for referrals, supporting colleagues from surrounding vet practices. For more information, visit their website.
