    The British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) has launched an Equine Practice Fundamentals Programme. The series of ten courses covers the essentials of equine care to equip those who are keen to establish themselves in equine practice with the essential skills they need to carry out their day job.

    BEVA has a history of running hugely popular practical equine CPD for recent graduates but was aware, from both younger members and their employers, that there were some equine fields where newer graduates were lacking in clinical skills. Suitable BEVA courses were not available.

    Designed by equine vets for equine vets, BEVA’s new Equine Practice Fundamentals Programme comprises 10 individual CPD courses with a mix of lectures and hands-on practicals. It builds on the broad training delivered by the universities to specifically provide the pragmatic knowledge and hands-on clinical skills needed by those in the early stages of an equine veterinary career. The content was designed on the back of consultation with over 60 senior practitioners from across BEVA’s membership.

    The average senior practitioner rated the likelihood that they would encourage recent graduates to attend the programme as 9/10 and feedback on the initial course proposal was highly encouraging, generating comments such as:

    “Fantastic idea, maybe not just for new graduates...how about including return to workers after career break? Those just wanting to make sure they're up to date?”

    “Excellent initiative.”

    “Great idea and think it will be very useful.”

    “The idea also could provide the new graduates with a network for support between themselves.”

    The courses cover:
    • Skin and eye fundamentals
    • Gastro-intestinal fundamentals
    • Sedation, field anaesthesia and castrations fundamentals
    • Radiography and ultrasound fundamentals
    • Fundamentals of equine internal medicine and clinical pathology
    • Dentistry fundamentals
    • Lameness and farriery fundamentals
    • Emergencies in equine practice
    • Pre-purchase exam, euthanasia, insurance and working at eventing competitions – the fundamentals
    • Reproduction essentials and how to survive in equine practice
    David Mountford, Chief Executive of BEVA, said: “Because BEVA doesn’t seek to make a profit on its CPD we can deliver an outstanding programme that is both highly regarded and affordable. We anticipate that the series will become essential CPD for those looking to establish themselves in equine practice, for practices looking to support the development of new staff, and for employers looking to differentiate between candidates.”

    The first five courses will be running during 2018 and again in 2019 together with the remaining five. The full series of ten courses can be booked at a discounted rate. Alternatively, each course can be booked individually.
