About the Master Programme in Companion Animal Clinical Science

The Master of Companion Animal Clinical Science Programme gives veterinarians with at least 2 years of practical professional experience from companion animal practice a university-based continuing education in applied and advanced veterinary methodology, paraclinical skills and clinical decision making. The programme enables you and your clinic to offer your patients a treatment that is based on the newest research, best-practices from other clinics, and the latest technology.

The programme is a part-time programme equivalent to one year of full-time study (60 ECTS credits). It is designed to be completed within three years.

At the Master of Companion Animal Clinical Science you receive an in-depth and updated knowledge on our compulsory courses that you continue to build upon when you specialise in one of our six specialization tracks. The specialization track of your own choice enables you to bring unique knowledge and praticals with you to implement in your daily work to the benefit of you, your clinic and your patients.
It is important for us that the Master Programme is closely linked to the reality and challenges in small animal practices and therefore practial workshops and in vivo operations are an important part of the Master Programme.
The Danish Veterinary Association plays an important role in facilitating the needs of small animal practitioners in the programme. Through its members and international collaboration, the association has the knowledge on the current challenges and future perspectives for small animal practitioners.

"It is only through continuing education based on the latest research knowledge that Danish veterinarians can meet the increasing requirements of their profession from clients, authorities and the general public.

Carsten Jensen, chairman of the Danish Veterinary Association
