By participating in continuing professional development you can improve your skills in a particular area and feed your passion for your area of interest.
Several of the AVA’s special interest groups (SIGs) hold annual conferences which focus on a particular topic or area of practice. Check out the Vet Ed calendar for SIG events or alternatively, go to the SIG section on our website.
Your division will also hold at least one conference each year, and your local branch will have at least one meeting each year. Further information about division conferences and branch meetings can be found on our Vet Ed calendar or you can contact your division directly to see which events are coming up.
The AVA Annual Conference is another great opportunity for continuing professional development and networking.
The Australian Veterinary Journal online quizzes are a convenient way to earn points in your own time. Each month a quiz is made available online and it is based on papers which have been published in the most recent journal.
Mentoring programs can help to improve your skills while helping a younger veterinarian find their feet. University students, graduates, and practising veterinarians are often looking for mentors to help guide them in a particular area. The AVA Mentor Program Guide provides information about your role as a mentor. You can apply to mentor online. Different Vet Ed points apply depending on who you are mentoring. Check the points allocation table for more information.
There are a range of opportunities online, through further study, at work or even in your own time that will help you build your career and earn points. You can see the full range available via the Who does what? page.
