Continuing Veterinary Education

‚ÄĆChanges in agricultural practice, trends in domestic animal ownership and increasing internationalisation mean that veterinary practitioners are faced with new challenges every day.

While Vets and Vet Nurses have continually developed their professional and clinical skills throughout their careers, the mandatory requirement for Continuing Veterinary Education (CVE) brings to the fore the need for relevant, timely courses to meet practitioners' needs.

Through the UCD CVE Educational Portal, we offer a range of flexible online, distance and on-campus courses for veterinary practitioners and veterinary nurses.

These online offerings bring CVE to your desktop. We hope you find them of benefit, and always welcome your suggestions for further development.

With best wishes,


Professor Michael Doherty
Dean of Veterinary Medicine, University College Dublin
