Continuous Professional Development (CPD)
At IVP you can earn CPD points in two ways:
Option 1: Earn one structured CPD point once a month via receiving an email that contains a brief body of pathology themed information and a short multiple-choice quiz at the end based on that information. Return your answers via email to IVP and receive a certificate stating the number of points you have received. You can do one quiz per month or several later on in the year once you find time to do them. There is no time limit. The certificate will be dated upon receipt of the answers.
Option 2: Earn one structured CPD point for every four specimens submitted given that a clinical history, in-house work-up and correct differential diagnoses are included.
YOU DON’T NEED TO REGISTER
YOU DON’T NEED TO FILL IN A SEPARATE FORM
Simply tick the box on the IVP submission form and provide your AVA membership number (if applicable). Once you have successfully obtained one CPD point you will receive a certificate from IVP with a brief summary of the four cases.
Both options are approved by the AVA and you will accumulate valuable VetEd points.
Both histology and cytology samples can be submitted under this scheme.
Veterinarians are expected to spend at least one hour per quiz and at least 15 minutes per specimen submission.
