Course content

The PgC in Equine Medicine has been developed after the veterinary profession told us there was a real need for such continuing professional development (CPD). This course is delivered as part of the University’s collaboration with Improve International and the European School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies (ESVPS). This partnership offers a suite of postgraduate courses that recognise the wide general practice career options for qualified veterinary surgeons, including roles as anaesthetists, radiologists, surgeons or specialism into companion animals or farm livestock for example.

The PgC Equine Medicine will:

  • Enhance your knowledge and understanding of equine internal medicine and ability to use that knowledge within veterinary practice
  • Improve problem solving skills in relation to your equine caseload
  • Help your surgeon-client relationship by developing your communication skills

Who is it for?

Students will be qualified veterinary surgeons and nurses who have worked in practice for two or more years, with a particular interest in equine medicine. They will typically be employed in practice on a full-time basis and undertaking CPD alongside work. Veterinary surgeons may choose to progress to a Postgraduate Diploma or Master of Science degree.

The course is validated by Harper Adams University.
