Medivet has announced a partnership with the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) to enable its veterinary nurses to access Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses on a range of topics including Emergency and Critical Care, Diagnostic Imaging and Anaesthesia and Analgesia.

Each topic is covered in a six-week module, delivered online by RVC lecturers using a blended learning approach to encourage learners to think critically. On successful completion of a module, the learner will gain up to 18 hours’ CPD and receive a CPD certificate from the RVC.

Rachel Mattia, Head of Learning and Development at Medivet, said: “The Medivet Training Centre delivers the initial training our nurses need to qualify as Registered Veterinary Nurses.  Building on this, our partnership with the RVC means that we can now support their continued development by giving them access to state-of-the-art CPD from recognised experts in an engaging, interactive format that they can fit in around their work and home life.”

“Our nurses are the lynchpins of our practice teams and we are committed to investing in their development throughout their careers through initiatives such as this partnership with the RVC.”



Medivet is a veterinary led group of almost 300 branches with 17 24-hour veterinary centres across the UK. Underpinned by its partnership ethos, it is forging a national community of passionate vets, offering exceptional veterinary care that’s always there.
