What's continuing veterinary education?

Graduation is only the beginning of a life-time commitment to continuing professional development. Universities offer post-graduate training in many disciplines and continuing veterinary education is available from a variety of sources, including the Australian Veterinary Association’s (AVA) conferences and events and from sources such as the Australian Veterinary Journal. The Australian College of Veterinary Scientists and post-graduate foundations around Australia also offer post-graduate programs.

Veterinary science offers a fulfilling and rewarding professional life, but it can also be demanding. You may be required to work long and often irregular hours so it is important that you strike a balance with your home and social life.

The veterinary family is very supportive and many vets in Australia are members of the AVA, the professional body that represents vets. The AVA has many programs and services available to its members and offers work related and personal support.
