Abstract

Postgraduate education is, and is likely to continue to be, an important aspect of sheep veterinary practice. A new distance education Masters program, offered by Charles Sturt University School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences, provides a cost-effective and accessible alternative for veterinarians wanting to increase their skills and the services they provide to existing and future clients. Veterinarians from anywhere in the world may choose to undertake the Certificate, Diploma or Masters level, and can complete the courses while continuing to live and work in their current location, undertaking work with existing clients to complete their studies. Recognition of the importance of postgraduate studies, maintaining motivation and having sufficient communication with other participants are challenges which need to be met with such courses.
