Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (Sheep)

If you wish to work towards the designated ‘Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (Sheep)’ at the University of Liverpool, you must successfully complete the following modules:

1x A-Module:  
A-FAVP.1 Foundations in Advanced Veterinary Practice
1x B-Module:  
B-PAP.2 Production Animal Practice
3x C-Modules:  
C-S.1  Diseases of Adult Sheep
C-S.2  Reproduction, Pregnancy and Parturition
C-S.3  Diseases of Lambs and Parasitic Diseases
Plus, 1x other B or C-Module: Pick from the complete list of modules

A & B modules provide the foundation for the rest of the CertAVP programme so they should be completed in order before C-modules.  A & B modules begin three times per year, in January, May and August, which means that you can choose when you begin your studies without waiting a whole academic year to begin. The C-modules can be completed in any order.

PLEASE NOTE: It is your responsibility to ensure that you have access to sufficient appropriate cases where you were the primary decision maker to produce adequate material for the module. This may not be possible with some internship positions. You must also be aware of any limitations of your facilities that may make the accumulation of appropriate cases difficult or impossible. 

Assessment is via continuous assessment/case-studies throughout each module and candidates are supported throughout their modules via a fully-structured e-learning programme.

Upon successful completion of all six modules, candidates must also pass a Synoptic Examination, in order to be awarded a designated certificate. Synoptic Examinations take place once per year, in spring, at the University’s Leahurst campus
