Masters degrees in Clinical Veterinary Medicine involve advanced study of the diagnosis and treatment of animal disease, illness and injury.
Postgraduate courses in Clinical Veterinary Medicine are typically ways for qualified vets to undertake continuing professional development (CPD), focusing on a particular aspect of the subject. Related postgraduate specialisms include Clinical Veterinary Dentistry and Veterinary Public Health.
A Masters in Clinical Veterinary Medicine gives veterinary practitioners the opportunity to boost their existing expertise in certain areas, or learn new skills and techniques to use in their day-to-day work.
For example, you might take a general module covering recent advances in animal medicine, or a more specific one on a subject such as wildlife disease management, anaesthetic equipment or livestock respiratory medicine.
As most students on these kinds of course are already veterinary practitioners, a Masters in Clinical Veterinary Medicine represents a chance to improve and diversify the range of services offered by their practice.
