Improve International has launched new modules  towards achieving a General Practitioner Certificate (GPCert) and Post Graduate Certificate (PgC) in Western Veterinary Acupuncture and Chronic Pain Management.  The programme is run in conjunction with the Western Veterinary Acupuncture Group and aims to enable veterinarians in practice to use acupuncture confidently and safely for a range of clinical conditions.

Improve International is one of the UK’s leading veterinary training companies with a 16 year track record in providing structured continuing professional development (CPD) to veterinary professionals.   Its postgraduate programmes are accredited by the European School of Postgraduate Veterinary Studies (ESVPS) and validated by Harper Adams University.  The Western Veterinary Acupuncture Group has been teaching acupuncture to veterinarians since 2000.

David Babington MRCVS, Managing Director of Improve International, explains:  “These new modules build on the Foundation course which has already proved very popular.  Once delegates have completed this, they can progress to these new modules which focus on the role of acupuncture in relieving chronic pain and can lead to attaining a recognised qualification.”

These new four modules are scheduled to start on 5 August 2015 at Improve’s training centre in Swindon and are available to book at www.improveinternational.com.  Further modules in the PgC programme will be released in 2016.

Improve International was founded in 1998 by veterinary surgeons from across the UK, including a number of recognised experts.   Acquired by Benchmark Holdings Plc in February 2015 and based in Swindon, it provides high quality CPD in a range of formats for veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurses, receptionists and practice managers to help them to develop their skills and knowledge, using a combination of review lectures, case-based discussion and where, applicable, hands-on practical sessions.
