Our Philosophy

Veterinary Professional Development was founded by vets who recognised an international lack of high-quality practically-oriented courses that combine lectures with hands-on small group teaching under the expert supervision of internationally renowned specialists in their fields.

The British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) and the European College of Zoological Medicine (ECZM) are Educational Partners of VetPD.   All courses offered by VetPD have been independently reviewed and approved by BEVA (Equine Courses) and ECZM (Avian & Exotic Animal Courses), in order to guarantee first-rate programs and outstanding speakers.

VetPD encourages all its speakers and instructors to present current, up-to-date scientific knowledge in their course lectures, using their considerable clinical experience to put the information into context and to give attendees useful practical pointers. We support frank and honest topical discussions, with speakers sharing their successes and failures in order to maximise the learning experience for all attending veterinarians. The majority of VetPD courses contain practical small group sessions because we believe that lectures require the addition of hands-on experience under the supervision of specialists to ensure attendees get the most out of professional development courses.  The number of available places for each course is therefore limited as we want to provide quality individual attention.

As a company we are furthermore committed to giving back to communities in need and disadvantaged peoples. Therefore we are pleased to donate 10% of our yearly profits to charities. Please contact us if you wish to receive more information about our charitable giving.
