BVA members on a career break, or in their first to third year after graduation, can access selected RVC Webinar Plus courses for £125 per webinar, 25% off the standard price.

To benefit from the discount, bookings must be made through BVA rather than directly with RVC.

The pre-recorded RVC Webinar Plus courses are designed to refresh, broaden and deepen delegate’s clinical skills.

The series is based on courses that have run in 2013. They contain all of the learning material (webinars, reading material, slides, self-assessment exercises), but are not tutor moderated. Instead, a set of FAQs is available for each course which represent the questions and concerns previous participants have had, and the tutors’ responses.

Courses available:

  • Dermatology essentials online
  • Endocrine essentials online
  • Essentials of GI disorders online
  • Diagnosis and management of hepatobiliary disorders online
  • Orthopaedic essentials online – management of fractures
  • Farm animal therapeutics online
