Research carried out by Improve International has found that 74% of veterinary students are not aware of the CPD options open to them after graduating.

The survey of 102 UK veterinary students, which was carried out by Charlotte French MRCVS (pictured right) in 2020, also revealed that 74% of respondents had engaged in extracurricular CPD whilst at university, including university presentations, online conferences, webinars and in-person congresses.

98% said they were willing to be involved in extracurricular CPD if it was available.

Charlotte said: "Students are interested in CPD and their career progression, they just need a little extra help in finding the right providers and sources."
