AdvantEdge – the next step in your career

It takes a certain calibre of Vet Surgeon to thrive in the challenging world of Emergency and Critical Care. At Vets Now we care about the development of our people and that’s why we have introduced AdvantEdge, a two week ECC programme for Vets who posses at least two years post qualification experience.

75 hours of free CPD designed by veterinary experts

The AdvantEdge programme contains a minimum of 75 hours of free CPD designed and delivered by veterinary experts that will give you the best possible start with Vets Now. The lectures and practical sessions are delivered by Advanced Practitioners and experienced emergency clinicians at our training facility in Dunfermline. Topics covered include blood gas analysis, managing shock and neurological emergencies as well as practical sessions on CPR and ultrasound. The programme culminates in a cadaver surgery practical followed by six mentored shifts in clinic.
