Course Summary

This highly practical course will bring together ultrasonography, radiology and CT/MRI in a series of interactive modules. The fundamental principles of all the imaging modalities including their applications will be covered in detail. Case based material will feature strongly throughout the course. The modules will assist delegates in consolidating their knowledge of the key imaging modalities and in choosing the most clinically appropriate diagnostic method.

The Diagnostic Imaging programme is provided by Improve International in collaboration with the International School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies (ISVPS) and Harper Adams University.

Complete the one-year programme (all modules) and achieve the General Practitioner Certificate (GPCert) by passing the required assessments with the International School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies (ISVPS).

Continue on to the Postgraduate Certificate (PgC) that combines the GPCert clinical studies, plus reflective practice, and successful completion of the Advanced Practitioner Module with Harper Adams University. The PgC represents Masters Level 7 within the Quality Assurance Agency’s framework for higher and further education. It provides 60 transferable academic credits.

After successfully completing your PgC, you may apply for the RCVS Advanced Practitioner Status. This is subject to meeting all the other entry requirements set out by the RCVS in the Applicant Guidance Notes.
