Introduction to the UK veterinary professions

The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) is holding a two day ‘Introduction to the UK veterinary professions’ continuing professional development (CPD) event for overseas trained veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses next month.

The event is for all overseas qualified vets and veterinary nurses who are either already on the Register, or who are intending to join the UK Register and would like to learn more about working in the UK and takes place in London on 20 and 21 November.

The first training day will be held on Tuesday 20 November at the RCVS headquarters on Horseferry Road, London. This day, titled ‘Working in UK veterinary practice: key information for vets and vet nurses’ will focus on the logistics of UK working, as well as covering how UK veterinary professions are organised, information regarding jobs, employment rights, and support available for veterinary employees who are in need of assistance. The course also seeks to help attendees understand their legal duties as a veterinary professional in the UK, along with their expected standards of professional conduct.

The course will be free to attend, with lunch and refreshments provided. The day will also see talks from various key figures in the field, including representatives from the British Veterinary Association (BVA), Veterinary Defence Society (VDS) Training, and the charity Vetlife, which was set up to help veterinary professionals manage their mental health and wellbeing.

The second part of the course will be held the following day on Wednesday 21 November and is a paid-for masterclass in communication offered by the VDS, titled ‘A master class in communication skills’. This course aims to help delegates improve their confidence and communication skills when starting work in the UK. The course presents delegates with scenarios they may face in the consulting room, using professional actors in role-play, and advises on the best ways to handle any potential situations. The day costs £180 per person, and will be held at Mary Sumner House in Westminster, where refreshments and lunch will also be provided.

The overall aim of this training is to improve the experience of overseas vets coming to the UK to work, as well as reducing the risk of complaints being made towards veterinary professionals, which will in turn contribute to the overall wellbeing and productivity of the UK veterinary workforce.

RCVS Director of Communications, Ian Holloway, said:

“We are delighted to be able to offer training courses such as these to support the working lives of veterinary professionals from overseas, who are planning to join our veterinary workforce in the UK. We have had very positive feedback about previous courses and hope that all attendees will enjoy the training offered and find the course beneficial for their professional careers.”

British Society for Veterinary Pathology – Farm Animal Pathology

British Society of Veterinary Pathologists Annual Meeting 2018 Applied ruminant pathology: Disease investigation, diagnosis and surveillance Friday 28th and Saturday 29th September 2018 School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Surrey

This year’s BSVP conference offers a quality lecture series focused on the four most common presentations of farmed ruminants to the post mortem room (pneumonia, sudden death, diarrhoea and abortion/perinatal mortality). This conference incorporates an applied ‘front line’ investigative approach with in-depth reviews on the pathogenesis and diagnosis of selected key diseases.

Designed for all vets and veterinary pathologists engaged in the investigation of farm animal disease, we will address typical clinical history, key gross findings, sampling technique and interpretation to aid in the diagnosis and surveillance of disease. The programme will be delivered by a team of experienced clinicians, veterinary investigation officers and farm animal pathologists, supported by our Keynote speaker, Prof Francisco Uzal (UC Davis), and several leading scientists in the field.

Please come along and help shape the future of UK farm animal pathology and disease surveillance by making your voice heard during an expert panel discussion. Trainees – don’t miss this valuable opportunity to gain key tips and advice on passing the board examinations by attending a training session led by two current members of the ACVP Exam Committee.
