Skip to 0 minutes and 12 seconds All veterinary professionals are leaders whether we realize it or not and we all face leadership challenges on a daily basis. For each and every one of us learning and practicing leadership skills enables us to thrive in the uncertain and complex environment of everyday life in practice and to take control of our own futures. For the professions as a whole, the development of leadership skills at all stages will help us to achieve the Vet Futures and the VM Futures vision for 2030. The development of everyday leadership skills is also an important part of every veterinary professional’s CPD so to encourage and support this the RCVS is launching the Edward Jenner Veterinary Leadership Program.

This new version builds on shared challenges from the health care professions and develops them for the veterinary world.

In the first course, over two to four weeks, you will learn about the concept of leadership and its importance in a battery setting. Along with the art of good leadership and decision making.

Finally, in the third course, we will ask you to take about four weeks to reflect on your learning and tell us how you’re applying it in your professional life. Accompanying the course is an audio drama featuring veterinary professionals living in the fictional county of Glenvern. You’ll hear their stories unfold and learn from and reflect on the issues and challenges they encounter in their day to day lives. Leadership begins with you.
