WOBURN, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–VetBloom, the cutting-edge, continuing education platform from Ethos Veterinary Health (Ethos), continues to rapidly expand its offerings and reach. VetBloom recently formed new partnerships with ONCORE ePD and David Liss, RVT, VTS (ECC, SAIM), CVPM, and is now launching in Asia in partnership with Veterinary Specialty Hospital (VSH) of Hong Kong, the first dedicated veterinary specialty hospital in the region.
Launching in June, VetBloom Asia contains popular and well-designed learning resources, tailored specifically to meet the needs of veterinary professionals at every stage of their career. Patrick Welch, DVM, MBA, DACVO, Chief Knowledge Officer of Ethos, explains why the Asian market is of particular interest. “We are seeing big changes in the way that veterinary professionals are able to access professional development resources. As many countries in Asia increase their adoption of formal continuing education requirements, the natural next step for VetBloom is to deliver innovative educational resources to the international veterinary community.”
VetBloom Asia will draw on the success of VetBloom’s U.S. operations together with the regional knowledge, relationships, and operating experience of the VSH Hong Kong team. “Veterinary continuing education is becoming more and more prevalent and easier to access as the demand from veterinary professionals grows,” said Dr. Alane Cahalane, CEO of VSH Hong Kong. “What’s really needed is a high caliber, comprehensive, up-to-date educational platform which can help to standardize the levels of professional knowledge in Asian countries. VetBloom Asia comprehensively fulfills those needs,” she continued.
On June 21st, 2017, in Quezon City, Philippines, Dr. Cahalane will deliver a complimentary learning event sponsored by VetBloom Asia for veterinary professionals in the area. For information and reservations please contact [email protected].
VetBloom also recently entered into partnerships with U.K.-based education provider, ONCORE ePD and David Liss, RVT. Since 2011, ONCORE ePD has been a pioneer of tutor-led, interactive online veterinary education covering a diverse range of subjects. ONCORE founder, Jill Macdonald, Dip AVN (Surg), RVN, FHEA, first became aware of VetBloom shortly after its launch in 2015 and has kept abreast of developments since that time. “I’m really impressed with the VetBloom learning platform and the commitment to quality and consistency of education offered,” said Macdonald. The product team, led by Jeffrey Johnson, M.Ed., has done excellent work and we are delighted to have the opportunity to collaborate.”
Dr. Welch sees great value in working with Jill and ONCORE within the context of a partnership. “Student feedback from ONCORE courses is fantastic and learners really appreciate the tutor mentorship and communication throughout. This type of online learning is not as prevalent in the U.S., and we’re excited to be working with Jill and ONCORE to launch these first modules,” he said.
Two instructor led modules – Patient-Friendly Practice: Dogs and Patient-Friendly Practice: Cats are currently in development for North American distribution and are scheduled for release in Q4 2017. For more information and to pre-register, please email [email protected].
