  • Improve International’s new GPAdvCert to help General Practitioners advance diagnostic skills and CT knowledge

    Diagnostic Imaging (Computed Tomography - CT) is the latest in a series of General Practitioner Advanced Certificates (GPAdvCert) announced by veterinary CPD specialist Improve International.

    The 12-module programme is aimed at European veterinary professionals who have completed their General Practitioner Certificate in Diagnostic Imaging (GPCertDIIM) or Postgraduate Certificate (PgC) in Diagnostic Imaging and who wish to advance their diagnostic imaging skills further and enhance their academic qualifications.

    Improve’s GPAdvCert in Diagnostic Imaging (CT) will be delivered in three blocks of four days in three European cities and will be led by Course Director Tim Trevail BVetMed, CertVDI, DipECVDI, MRCVS. It will commence in May 2019 with training taking place in Vienna (Austria), Porto (Portugal) and Limassol (Cyprus). Each module will be led by ECVS or ACVS Diplomates and will be supported by an online learning platform providing notes, additional resources and the ability for delegates to discuss clinical cases in a closed forum. The programme has received conditional validation from Harper Adams University pending full approval early next year and is accredited by the European School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies (ESVPS).

    Commenting on the launch of the new GPAdvCert, Mr David Babington MRCVS, Business Development Director at Improve International, said: “Diagnostic Imaging (CT) is already widely available in many veterinary practices, with Diagnostic Imaging and CT studies becoming more and more common for veterinary practitioners as a result. Each module of this advanced programme has been designed to progress delegates’ knowledge beyond Postgraduate Certificate level with more in-depth and advanced content. The programme focuses on practical training and includes CT scan reading sessions and case discussions.”

    He added: “Improve’s GPAdvCert programmes help vets in practice to reduce the number of patients they refer, enabling them to retain a higher level of income for their practice. The programme will also provide them with skills which they can pass onto their team.”

    According to Improve, the successful achievement of a GPAdvCert enables delegates to progress from a Postgraduate Certificate (or equivalent) to the Postgraduate Diploma in Advanced Veterinary Practice Sciences in the UK, which is awarded by Harper Adams University. This can, in turn, be used towards the award of a Master’s Degree (MSc) in Advanced Veterinary Practice Sciences.

    Part of Benchmark and based in Swindon, Improve International provides high quality CPD in a range of formats for veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurses, receptionists and practice managers to help them to develop their skills and knowledge, using a combination of review lectures, case-based discussion and where, applicable, hands-on practical sessions.
