Improve International Partners With VECCS

23 August 2023 -

Last week, Improve International started a unique partnership with the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society (VECCS) to elevate the global standard of emergency medicine in practice. 

The two organizations are collaborating to raise awareness of Improve International’s Emergency Medicine and Surgery online learning program. Upon successful completion of the training and examinations, delegates can earn an ISVPS General Practitioner Certificate and a Postgraduate Certificate awarded by Harper Adams University. 

VECCS was founded in 1974 to promote the advancement of knowledge and high standards of practice in veterinary emergency medicine and critical care. To fulfill this purpose, it hosts a membership community, medical journal, monthly webinars, facility certification, wellness initiatives, a charitable arm and two annual educational conferences which offer progressive, innovative, and comprehensive CE to members and non-members alike. 

The new alliance between the two global companies will increase the confidence and ability for veterinary teams to handle emergency cases together.  

Delegates will cover 14 important subjects and have the opportunity to take part in three practical sessions to learn under the guidance of highly experienced specialists in preparation of real-life scenarios. Upon completion, veterinary surgeons can earn 168 RACE-approved CE credits and also an ISVPS General Practitioner Certificate (GPCert) and Harper Adams Postgraduate Certificate (PgC).  

Dr Charlotte French, Head of Business Development for the US at Improve Veterinary Education, said: “We are excited to partner with VECCS and to expand our global efforts in improving emergency medicine in practice. It is one of the most difficult areas that vets must tackle, so we are proud to be working together in building a strong foundation of knowledge so vets can approach these high-pressure situations with the right tools.”
