Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

New CPD Guidelines for Veterinary Surgeons in South Australia will take effect on 1 January 2021

Continuing professional development (CPD) provides an important foundation for veterinary surgeons to comply with the Board's Code of Professional Conduct for Veterinary Surgeons and to uphold the public's trust and confidence in the profession.

An ongoing commitment to maintain, improve and broaden skills and knowledge ensures that veterinary surgeons remain competent to provide veterinary treatment to a high professional standard.

New, contemporary CPD Guidelines will take effect on 1 January 2021 and will require South Australian registered veterinary surgeons to complete 90 units of CPD activity flexibly over a period of 3 years in defined categories.

Current CPD Guidelines expire on 31 December 2020
