In September 2018, a new partnership was announced between Grads to Vets Ltd and the BVA. Under the terms of the partnership, new graduates joining the Grads to Vets scheme will also be given BVA membership, enabling greater access to the range of added support, CPD and online resources BVA provides its members.

BVA exists to support and represent the veterinary profession, and we know from our Voice of the Veterinary Profession Survey and anecdotally that new graduates are particularly in need of support as they first enter practice. We have been looking for ways in which we can best help vets at the beginning of their career and we believe that Grads to Vets provides an excellent 360⁰ package to make sure young vets can embark on the first job feeling inspired and confident.

We look forward to bringing this scheme to our members and to promoting this fantastic service so that we can help both new graduates and employers work together to make those first years in practice a success.” John Fishwick, BVA President.

We share a lot of our core values with BVA and so it is wonderful to be able to announce this partnership.  We know that together we will be able to grow the scheme more effectively and in so doing provide more graduates with the support and CPD that they so clearly want and need.”
