VetSuccess Program – A Learning Management Platform
The VetSuccess Program is a process of self-assessment that aims to instil a conscious and conscientious approach to professional learning. It provides a flexible framework to allow new and recent graduates, overseas graduates, and those returning to work, to reflect on their progress in developing their confidence and competence across several clinical areas, measured against Key Clinical Competences. This platform helps facilitate regular, collaborative and constructive discussions with a clinical supervisor in a supportive environment.
There is a Professional Development Log component to the system that allows vets to set professional/personal goals and record their CPD activities. The Clinical Experience Component functions to allow recording of case notes, clinical skills and procedures, and regular self-assessment.
Professional Experiences and Social Responsibilities
Our work extends beyond our hospital. As one of Australia’s largest veterinary practice network, we strive to use our resources, reach and relationships to improve the well-being of pets, communities, our associates and the veterinary profession every day.

The team at East Bentleigh Vet Clinic partake in yearly expeditions across parts of Asia to assist in the surgical training of para-veterinary professionals and students, and conduct regular population control and anti-rabies projects with the support of local council.
The graduate’s in our South Australia VetPartners Graduate Program lend a hand with the Animal Welfare League, volunteering their time and skill to assist in their desexing campaigns.
On a company-wide level, we are partnering with local and global animal charity organisations where mutual, two-way benefits can bring about a meaningful, positive change to our world.
