Think like an emergency vet and achieve better outcomes for your patients

Emergencies are stressful situations that often fill veterinarians with dread. This feeling results from the fear of the unknown and the realization that one decision can make a difference between life and death. Improve Veterinary Education's Postgraduate Certificate (PgC) Program in Emergency Medicine and Surgery has been transformed to provide you with the knowledge and confidence you need to deal with these situations and think like an emergency vet!

The most up-to-date content in emergency practice

This online CE program is brought to you by top global specialists and covers the most common small animal emergencies and more. The learning has been peer-reviewed and expanded to include current topics. The course is built around 14 online modules, each containing an introductory video from the tutor, 9 interactive lessons for you to work through, 2 case studies, notes, and pre and post-module questions for reflection.

At the end of the program, you can also choose to attend three optional in-person and hands-on modules, which will cover emergency ultrasound, surgical techniques, and several emergency procedures. For those completing the full Emergency Medicine and Surgery Program, you can purchase these modules at an exclusive price.

This program is delivered in collaboration with RECOVER (Reassessment Campaign on Veterinary Resuscitation).

RECOVER is a collaborative project supported by the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society and the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care.

Fees for the program include access to online RECOVER Basic Life Support courses, to supplement your learning and to provide an additional 8.5 hours of RACE-approved CE. Improve Veterinary Education will also be running optional practical RECOVER attendance courses in the USA for participants wishing to gain their BLS/ALS Rescuer Certification ( additional charge applies).
