Edinburgh/Royal Veterinary College - Better vetting

January 7, 2010

Student vets are set to be better prepared for placements thanks to a new online learning tool that resembles a driving theory test. It was designed by Catriona Bell at the University of Edinburgh, and Sarah Baillie - winner of Times Higher Education's Most Innovative Teacher award 2009 - at the Royal Veterinary College. Dr Bell said: "Vets say they take on students as they want to support the future generation of vets - they are not paid to provide extramural studies. Students need to make sure they convey their interest and enthusiasm to all members of the practice team through their body language - they don't always realise, for example, what an impact slouching and looking down at the floor can have."
