Companion animal veterinarians service a huge variety of species from dogs and cats to a multitude of exotic creatures.
Like all areas of veterinary practice, expertise in the companion animal sector is always changing and adapting as new scientific studies are undertaken.
The NZVA have created a selection of courses which will be of value to companion animal veterinarians at different stages of their career. You can select from one of the NZVA courses listed below to update, improve or extend your companion animal practice or check out our CPD calendar to view an extensive selection of CPD offered by other providers.
Externally provided NZVA Accredited CPD
To help veterinarians identify high quality CPD, the NZVA, in consultation with the Veterinary Council of New Zealand (VCNZ), has implemented an accreditation “tick” for CPD activities.
Listed below are CPD activities that meet the requirements for NZVA CPD accreditation and are provided by organisations external to the NZVA. Please contact the individual providers for specific information about each CPD activity.
For more information about NZVA CPD accreditation please visit the NZVA CPD accreditation application page.
