The General Practitioner Certificate (GPCert) in Computed Tomography will replace the General Practitioner Advanced Certificate (GPAdvCert) in Diagnostic Imaging (Computed Tomography).

ISVPS continually monitors the quality of its veterinary certificates, aiming to keep them updated and relevant for a profession that is in constant evolution.

As a result, we have considered feedback from our Specialists and in response to rapid expansion in the use of CT imaging as a diagnostic tool within general veterinary practice, ISVPS and Improve International have decided to adapt the modular training programme and award In Diagnostic Imaging (Computed Tomography). The award will become a General Practitioner Certificate (GPCert) in Computed Tomography, rather than a General Practitioner Advanced Certificate (GPAdvCert) in Diagnostic Imaging (Computed Tomography).

The course content and benefits to you and your practice remain the same, with the GPCert Diagnostic Imaging prerequisite requirements removed, recognising that not everyone who wishes to pursue CT has completed—or is interested in completing—an initial course in broader diagnostic imaging.

The GPCert (CT) retains validation from our partner organisation, Harper Adams University, as a 40-credit module. Consequently, these academic credits can continue to be used toward a Postgraduate Diploma (PgD) in Advanced Veterinary Practice Sciences when used in conjunction with a 60-credit Postgraduate Certificate (PgC) in Diagnostic Imaging, or any other PgC offered through the partnership between Harper Adams University, Improve International and ISVPS.

We hope this change will continue to benefit the veterinary profession – and it is now available for all the professionals who are looking to expand their knowledge within this specialty.

If you would like more information regarding the General Practitioner Certificate (GPCert) in Computed Tomography, please contact the ISVPS team via and we will be delighted to provide further information.
