Grad Track Graduate Programme – 2022 Dates

GradTrack is a joint collaborative programme designed by SPVS and VDS Training, consisting of specialized workshops to help equip graduates with the tools and knowledge to develop their non-clinical skills. Being an effective veterinary practitioner requires satisfying a range of stakeholders we come into contact with as part of our daily work, including our patients, clients, employers, colleagues and ourselves.

Whilst you may not believe it yet, a lack of clinical knowledge and skill isn’t what causes vets the most ‘stress’ during their career – it is gaps in non-clinical skills. GradTrack is a unique course created to address these gaps from the outset of your career, equipping you to purposefully pursue the breadth of outcomes required to become a successful veterinary practitioner.
