Regional Program of Systematic Education of Veterinary Services
ProgRESSVet (Regional Program of Systematic Education of Veterinary Services) is an innovative educational initiative that aims to increase the capacity of veterinary services in Spanish-speaking Latin America.
The primary objective of ProgRESSVet is to create and implement a training program, delivered predominantly on-line, to enhance the capabilities of human resources of the Veterinary Services (VS) in Latin America. The program is based upon the OIE's Advanced Competencies for veterinary service professionals and seeks to enhance both the knowledge and skills necessary for advanced practice in veterinary services. Beyond individual and group training, ProgRESSVet is aligned with the OIE's objectives of making accessible, promoting, and sustaining measures for regional development.
ProgRESSVet courses will be delivered on-line, employing the best known and innovative practices for distance, technology-supported education. Individual courses based on OIE advanced competencies will include learning activities and assessments aligned with content-specific learning goals, with focus on the application, integration, and sharing of new knowledge and skills. A certificate of approval will be awarded to those who pass a final comprehensive examination.
