The Practical Skill Centre For Veterinarians
Certified Courses by EBVS Diplomates
The Upskill.vet Centre
Visit our educational facility in the historical city centre of Bratislava, Slovakia. Our facility houses a lecture room and wet-lab space with 10 fully equipped workstations, including portable digital X-ray. During our courses we aim to minimise long theoretical sessions and therefore are able to share skills and experience that are directly applicable in your own clinical setting. All events are led by European or American Diplomates. You will receive a nationally and internationally recognised (VetCEE – www.vetcee.edu) certificate of attendance on completion of each course. We look forward to welcoming you at Upskill.vet!
See below a list of our upcoming events with more detailed information in the pop-up window. Registration closes 4 weeks before each course; most courses will be limited to 16-20 participants to ensure key interactions with the instructors. Our events are peer-reviewed and acknowledged by VetCEE (EAEVE, EBVS, FVE and UEVP). In case the course is fully booked, please contact us to be added to a waiting list.

Upskill.vet was founded by two ECVS Diplomates with a passion for innovative education and the highest standards of patient care. This and our personal regional connection brought us to the desire to create a specialised institution dedicated to practical veterinary teaching in the Central European region. The goal is to deliver exceptional teaching of practical skills and sharing of experience with veterinary practitioners in order to continuously help maintain an excellent level of care of our patients. Courses are offered in different languages to enable access to a broad European audience. Our priority is to provide participants with skills they can translate into their own clinical setting.
Being fully aligned with pragmatic evidence-based medicine we aim to minimise dated teaching techniques including prolonged theoretical lectures and literature repetition. Rather we focus on the interactive aspect of each course and the sharing of relevant tips and tricks. We believe this to be the most effective way of learning and developing your skills. To assure the highest standards, each of our events is led by an EBVS Diplomate as well as peer-reviewed and accredited by VetCEE. Our collaborations with leading veterinary stakeholders allow us provision of high-end services and equipment for our participants. However, Upskill.vet is 100% privately held in order to guarantee independence and a high didactic, scientific and overall educational quality. We are continuously adding new partners, as well as instructors in different specialties and progress and evolution of our premises are essential parts of our philosophy. Additionally, our facility is located in the vibrant Slovak capital Bratislava, which offers great potential for being explored.
