RCVS has set out proposals for Veterinary Education and Training
in the future. The Education Strategy Steering Group (ESSG) have
produced a document which can be read on the RCVS website (click
the icon on the right to view the ESSG pages).
Some of the proposals include:
· Changes to the Veterinary undergraduate
Professional Training Programme (PTP) where new graduates are supported
in a registered practice under a structured system that provides
guidance and appraisal. At the end of the first year a 'Year 1 competance'
will be achieved
· Practices becoming registered in a certain area of Veterinary
· Continued Professional Development (CPD) to become compulsory
· Revalidation of license to practice during your working
The BVA and RCVS are keen for student feedback on any of the proposals
in the ESSG document. If you would like to voice your opinions or
suggestions then please forward them to your AVS rep.
