Veterinary careers can be hugely rewarding, but there comes a time when most people who work in them ask, "Do I really want to do this anymore?"
There's an unspoken, and incorrect, expectation that the typical clinical veterinary role works for everyone, whatever their personal circumstances, whatever their stage of career. The reality is that our lives change, we change and sometimes the work that we do doesn't feel "right" anymore.
Coaching is a highly effective way of supporting people to make change in their lives, but many veterinary professionals experience time-related barriers to accessing such services. In this unique online course, veterinarian and accredited career coach Jenny Moffett supports you to make change at a time and place convenient to you.
Using an evidence-based coaching framework, "Veterinary medicine: Where to next?" presents you with the key topics, tool and strategies that allow you to clarify your next steps. Over three sections (the course takes about four hours, and is entirely self-paced), you will be guided to create your individualised career plan.
This course is suitable for veterinarians, veterinary technicians and veterinary nurses working in clinical or non-clinical roles, and for an international audience. So, whether you've set your sights on a new role and you want help to get there, or you simply want to explore options, "Veterinary Medicine: Where To Next?" puts you on the right path.For further information about the course, please contact Jenny at firstname.lastname@example.org

"I thought this course was great! I really wish I had this
available back a year and a half ago when I was considering a career

to work from"
