What is Vet CPD?
Veterinary Continuing Professional Development (Vet CPD) is the process by which vets continually maintain, improve and broaden their professional and personal skills and knowledge to ensure they remain professionally competent. In the UK, all practising vets must undertake a minimum of 105 hours of Vet CPD in any three-year period, with an average of 35 hours per year. This applies whether you are full or part-time, regardless of the number of hours you work.
Vet CPD courses
It’s not just clinical and surgical skills that vets need to learn and polish regularly, in order to stay up to date with latest developments and best practice. Clients choose and continue to use a veterinary practice as a result of a number of emotional and practical factors, and this whole ‘customer experience’ should therefore be a crucial focus for all vets in an increasingly crowded and competitive market. Vet CPD courses will help you and your team optimise each of the touch points on the client journey to and through the practice, so that pets and owners receive the consistently great care that builds trust, strengthens bonds between vet and client and helps your customers recommend you. Vet CPD courses will help you learn techniques to identify and defuse difficult situations and communicate effectively with clients in the limited consult time available.
