About this course

This day is designed for two types of CertAVP candidates. The CertAVP Survival Tips day is for any veterinarian interested in the CertAVP, whether they are newly enrolled or not. CertAVP Clinic is for candidates already enrolled and part/mid way through their studies. The programmes are run concurrently, so you are able to pick and choose the workshops to suit you.

The Survival Tips day will start with an introduction to the CertAVP and how to get started at the RVC, followed by a detailed look at the A-FAVP.1 module. There will be a talk on effective reflective writing and a presentation from the RVC Library to explore what is available online and how to make best use of literature search facilities. There are Q&A discussion forums for B and C modules, run by the relevant module leader, and you will also hear from CertAVP candidates who have passed the CertAVP (‘survivors’), speaking about their experiences.

The Clinic is designed for those veterinarians already enrolled on the CertAVP.  You are able to book 1-2-1 sessions with module leaders, have informal chats with CertAVP ‘survivors’ and library staff. You can sit in on the reflective writing and library talks, or choose to spend time in the library.
