Improve International is a long-established company, dedicated to providing the highest quality training for veterinary professionals.

Owned and run by vets for vets, Improve has the simple aim of helping vets and veterinary nurses become the best that they can be within a general practice environment.

Improve International has developed over 20, structured modular training programmes for veterinary surgeons and 8 similar programmes for veterinary nurses. These innovative courses combine review lectures, case-based discussions and where possible hands-on practical exercises.

International links were crystallised in 2007 when a working relationship was established with two vets in Portugal. From this office, which now employs 12 people, modular programmes are coordinated which take place in six other European countries. The UK office also employs 12 people and looks after a wide range of programmes across the UK, Eire, Scandinavia and Italy, working in collaboration with SCIVAC, Italy’s largest small animal vet association.

In August 2013, programmes will be launched in Australia and New Zealand.

Improve International is the licensed training provider for the European School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies (ESVPS) across Europe. Established in 2003, ESVPS accredits the Improve modular programmes and awards Certificate level qualification to both vets and nurses.

There are now over 1,500 General Practitioner Certificate holders across a broad range of subjects. Improve International together with ESVPS have also established a Partnership with Harper Adams University in the UK, enabling vets to gain a Postgraduate Certificate (PgC) in many of the key subjects. There will soon be an option for vets to use these PgC’s as a stepping stone towards a Masters Degree.

The contribution these initiatives have made toward the standard of veterinary care delivered to patients in veterinary practices world-wide cannot be underestimated.
