Clinical programme (one/two year options)

Exotic Animal Practice

GPCert and PgC Awards

This two year programme will leave you fully equipped to understand and treat the more varied cases and species. The programme includes taught sessions on all key areas and promises to bring you fully up to date with all of the current and emerging issues.

Exotic pets often fill veterinary surgeons with dread as they come through the surgery door. This programme will assist you in consolidating your knowledge of exotic medicine and surgery and help you to develop an informed clinical approach to the exotic patient.

The programme includes fourteen modules. In addition a dedicated Programme Tutor will provide support throughout the entire programme ensuring you are well placed for your examination.

Your learning options:

  1. Extend your knowledge and skills in a specific area, by choosing a single or paired module of your interest.
  2. Complete the one-year programme (all modules) and achieve the General Practitioner Certificate (GPCert) and attain 40 academic credits at Masters Level 7.
  3. Continue on to a Postgraduate Certificate (PgC) that combines the GPCert clinical studies with reflective practice (the Advanced Practitioner Module is 20 academic credits at Masters Level 7.) The PgC is 60 academic credits.
  4. After completing your Postgraduate Certificate, you can apply for the RCVS Advanced Practitioner Status. This is subject to meeting all of the other entry requirements set out by RCVS in the Applicant Guidance Notes.
