We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new suite of ILM-accredited qualifications in veterinary business, leadership and management.
About our new qualifications
Our Certificate in Veterinary Practice Management has been the industry standard qualification for a quarter of a century. Developed from the early days of our predecessor the Veterinary Practice Management Association, the CVPM demonstrates that holders are capable of being dropped into any veterinary practice and succeeding. Consisting of a set of gruelling written and in-person assessments, the CVPM exam is a real test of operational management, prioritising, strategy, and thinking on your feet. Holders are an elite group.
However, the veterinary leadership landscape has been changing. We now recognise that leadership comes in many different forms, and leaders have many different roles. The launch of our Leadership Standards Framework in October 2020 was the culmination of a year’s worth of dedicated research into what today’s veterinary leadership and management best practice looks like. We therefore felt that the time was right to review and rebuild our flagship qualification, to ensure that our provision remains at the forefront of 21st century veterinary leadership and management. So, how have we done this, and what does it mean for the veterinary sector today?
