Professional Development Phase
Resource Bank

Welcome to BSAVA's PDP pages

These pages have been developed to support BSAVA members by providing a structured bank of online resources around General Professional Skills for the veterinary profession. To support new graduates these are matched directly to each of the RCVS PDP competences.

Whether you are a new or recent graduate, returning to work after a break, an employer supporting a newly qualified graduate in your practice or simply wanting to refresh your professional or clinical skills, we hope you'll find support within these pages.

For each topic, or RCVS competence, below you'll be able to access a range of resources, including webinars, podcasts, videos, PDFs and weblinks. These are available in a range of timings, from 15 to 90 minutes to provide CPD for even the busiest day.

A selection of the resources included in these pages are available to non-members who have registered on the BSAVA website. You can complete the registration form here.

These BSAVA PDP pages are part of an ongoing long-term project and throughout 2017 we will be producing further resources to support all BSAVA members in developing or refreshing their Practical and Clinical Skills. These resources will be matched to Section B of the RCVS PDP competences.
