Enrolment for new Masters opens on Monday 3rd October
30 September 2016
Enrolment opens on Monday 3rd October for the brand new Masters in Clinical Veterinary Research which the BSAVA launched recently. The first intake of students will start the 2 year course in January 2017.
The BSAVA Masters in Clinical Veterinary Research provides a new opportunity for veterinary surgeons working in small animal clinical practice or clinical training programmes, with a particular interest in the identification and solving of problems through clinical research.
The qualification, which is validated by Nottingham Trent University, is aimed at vets who already have any accredited Postgraduate Certificate (60 credits at Level 7) relevant to some aspect of veterinary medicine or surgery.
The Masters programme starts with online study into the principles of clinical research, which students will then apply to their own research project. Students will be allocated a ‘matched’ supervisor who will provide advice and guidance throughout the research project, in addition to the support of the BSAVA team.
The course consists of 1,200 study hours, with students given the flexibility to achieve this in two years of part-time study or up to five years, depending on the nature of the project and an individual’s availability.
