  • Here’s what two of your peers from Murdoch University have to say. As part of the CVE’s drive to alert every Australasian veterinary student to the benefits of life-long membership, commencing as a Student Member and transitioning through to Recent Graduate and Professional Member, the CVE made complimentary places available at our recent Feline Medicine Conference in Perth. Two students, in return, agreed to share their experience with their peers. Note: Student Membership is FREE and entitles students to 75% discount on most courses. Visit for more info.

  • You’ll know immediately that we’re talking about Dr Graeme Allan (BVSc ‘66 MVetSc '72 DVetSc '12), a visionary educator in the field of veterinary radiology whose achievements were honoured recently at the University of Sydney Veterinary Faculty Alumni Award evening (27 July 2016) where Graeme accepted the Award for Innovation & Entrepreneurship. This award celebrates Australia’s foremost thinkers and achievers who have left an indelible mark on the lives of their fellows and animals.

    Ever fancied yourself behind a camera, or maybe in a post-production role? Dreams are NOT free – but if you’re a CVE Member, they’ve just become a helluva lot more achievable! We know from recent breakfast discussions held with vets and from general feedback that many of you feel stressed and burnt out, and are looking for some emotional nourishment. Here’s your chance.  The CVE have negotiated a 10% discount off Centre for Continuing Education (CCE) courses at the University of Sydney (UoS) for all CVE Members. This is an amazing offer and equals the discount available to UoS employees. Big ideas. Short courses. Open to the general community, the CCE is the vehicle whereby the UoS – recognising the value of continuing education and lifelong learning for all – extends access to its resources and expertise to the public. The CCE offers an amazing range beginning with A at Arts & Humanities and ranging through to Travel. Investigate the range of courses available here:

    We’re excited to launch this revamped website and hope you’ll agree that, apart from looking great, it has enhanced functionality and capabilities. Our goal was to design it so that it was logically organised, intuitive, contained crucial information for users and was easy to navigate. In short – user friendly and member-centric.
