Pet Emergency & Specialist Centre is a leader in continuing education of veterinary nurses, veterinary science students from Melbourne University, veterinarians in private practice and interns who spend a year in our hospital learning. We have a large lecture theatre and can seat 50 people. We offer a regular seminar program for referring vets to keep them informed of new developments in veterinary medicine. Nursing seminars and other educational events are available from Pet Emergency & Specialist Centre too. We also run weekly case discussions between all of our vets to make sure we are all informed about the difficult and complex patients and can work together as a team.

Our hospital motto is:

"Committment, communication & continuing education."

We believe that ongoing participation in educating more junior vets for the future will help maintain and improve the standards of care for all pets in Melbourne. We have been very fortunate to have a leading Pet Food company Hill's® Pet Nutrition sponsor our in-house digital projection system. Hill's® is committed to excellence in dietary solutions to common medical diseases in dogs and cats. They offer a comprehensive range of Prescription Diet® and Science Diet® in both wet and dry formulations.

Hill's® is making a difference and helping us educate veterinarians of today and the future.
