ProgRESSVet (Programa Regional de Educacion Sistematica de Servicios Veterinarios) is an innovative educational initiative that aims to increase the capacity of veterinary services in Spanish-speaking Latin America. It is a collaborative effort between the Center for Animal Health and Food Safety (CAHFS) at the University of Minnesota and the Centro Buenos Aires para la Capacitación de los Servicios Veterinarios (CEBASEV), the designated Collaborating Centers of the World Organisation of Animal Health (OIE) in the Americas.

Program goals

The primary objective of ProgRESSVet is to create and implement a training program, delivered predominantly on-line, to enhance the capabilities of human resources of the Veterinary Services (VS) in Latin America.  The program is based upon the OIE’s Advanced Competencies for veterinary service professionals and seeks to enhance both the knowledge and skills necessary for advanced practice in veterinary services. Beyond individual and group training, ProgRESSVet is aligned with the OIE’s objectives of making accessible, promoting, and sustaining measures for regional development.
