 The Small Animal Medicine Certificate attracted me as all the modules were focused on medicine which meant that I could dedicate my time to learning things which really interested me. The knowledge I gained from the course made a huge difference in the way I work up cases and I am much more confident and structured in my approach to medicine cases. It was easy to fit this course in alongside my full time job and I would definitely recommend this to anyone who would like to gain further qualifications but is worried about fitting it in to their already busy life. I am now working my way through the Improve International ultrasound courses and really enjoying them too!

 The Improve International Small Animal Medicine course provides a very structured way of completing a certificate, that’s really easy to fit in around full time work. The course has given me a huge amount of confidence in dealing with complex medical cases, and has allowed, in most cases, a full work up to be completed in house, without the need for referral. I was so impressed with the way Improve ran the course that I’m planning on signing up for a second GPCert this September!

 I am currently enrolled for the Small Animal Surgery Certificate after successfully completing the GPCert(DI) two years ago. The practical sessions are some of the best I ever attended and the constant personal attention makes for an unparalleled learning opportunity. As before the course gives a well structured learning experience that guides delegates through the very bulky field of small animal surgery.\r\n\r\nThe lectures are well thought through and practical in order to provide us with the best opportunity to learn systematically and also gain practical experience in more challenging or unusual procedures. The lecturers are all fantastic people with the ability to share knowledge effectively.

 The theory backed up by the amazing practical sessions really consolidate your knowledge base, and in my case, gave me a kick (up the backside) to crack on, read the notes, read the textbook, watch the DVD and go ahead and book in the perineal hernia repair or the salivary gland removal instead of referring it on to someone else’s practice. I now eagerly anticipate the next surgery case walking through that consulting room door. There is no doubt that attending the Improve course in small animal surgery has given me the confidence to say “well, actually, I can do that
