The BSAVA Masters in Clinical Veterinary Research is designed primarily for veterinary surgeons working in small animal clinical practice or clinical training programmes, with a particular interest in the identification and solving of problems through clinical research.
The Masters course is flexible and combines online learning and a workplace-based clinical research project so students can continue working throughout the course.
Enrolled students study part-time at a pace that suits them; the course may be completed within two years, or be extended to a maximum of five years. The Masters is accredited through Nottingham Trent University, and will carry 180 credits at Level 7.
A current Masters student describes her experience of the course so far, “It has been very interesting – I had already been taught some aspects of clinical research but the course has really expanded my knowledge in this area. I feel much more confident about the subject now. The tutors have been great – really helpful and approachable.”
