A programme to help veterinary professionals understand how evidence-based veterinary medicine can be achieved in practice is to launch in June – and there is a bursary available that covers the full cost of registration.
Created by the Centre for Evidence-based Veterinary Medicine (CEVM) at the University of Nottingham’s School of Veterinary Medicine and Science, the programme will be delivered through real-time online tutorials, facilitated distance learning, and in-person workshops at the school, with guidance, resources and support provided throughout.
The three components of the course (to be completed over three to four months) are:
- What is evidence-based veterinary medicine and why is it important?
- How do I find and appraise the evidence?
- How do I apply the evidence-based veterinary medicine approach to my practice?
Enrolment dates for the three components are:
- 27 June 2016 (1)
- 1 November 2016 (2)
- 2 January 2017 (3).
The 35 hours of CPD costs £995, although the CEVM bursary for this course covers the full registration costs for an individual veterinary surgeon to join either of the first two course start dates.
