The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) has welcomed 740 new vets to its register this summer as students from the UK’s seven veterinary schools were registered as part of their graduation ceremonies.
The RCVS president or vice-president, plus the CEO or another member of the senior team, attended all events.
On graduation, all new veterinary surgeons received a memory stick from the college, which included a guide for new members, the RCVS Code of Professional Conduct for Veterinary Surgeons, CPD record card, information about the Professional Development Phase, which is mandatory for all new graduates working in clinical practice, and other college publications.
Welcoming the new graduates, RCVS president Neil Smith said: “Graduation represents a culmination of such a long period of hard work – supported by family, friends and vet school staff. It’s also the start of what I hope will be satisfying lifelong careers in a profession that is proud to keep animal health and welfare at its heart.
“I hope that this latest generation of veterinary surgeons will benefit from the broad range of career opportunities available, just as the animal-owning public will benefit from their skills and knowledge.”
