Free CPD in 2023 with the Roseworthy Veterinary Alumni Network

The University of Adelaide’s Roseworthy Veterinary Alumni (RVA) Network will be offering free continuing professional development (CPD) training to veterinary professionals in 2023.

The RVA Network was founded in 2019 to maintain the University’s engagement with alumni from its Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) program, and ensure the relationship between individual and institution is not lost at graduation. It organises a range of activities tailored to the veterinary profession, including CPD and mental health first aid training, as well as social events, networking opportunities, and reunions.

RVA’s CPD training supports the professional development of veterinarians by ensuring they remain up to date with best clinical practice. This year the RVA will provide five CPD sessions covering a diverse range of topics:

Registration for the first three sessions is now open, and all veterinary professionals are welcome to attend. Demand for these CPD sessions will be high, so you are encouraged to register your attendance as soon as possible to avoid disappointment!
