2014 Partners in Veterinary Education Conference

Essential Skills for Practice Success: Keeping your practice on the Sharp Edge of the Educational Roundabout - 17-18 July 2014


Students in front of the Roundhouse

In response to requests from many practitioners, we have created a program aimed at addressing some of the new challenges in veterinary practice. Hopefully, in reading the outline of this program, you will see presentations that will address challenges in your practice, not only in terms of hosting undergraduate students but in ensuring the members of your team are working in an environment that optimises the outcomes of the team. We have incorporated some real and common challenges that practitioners have shared with us in feedback. There should be something for everyone in the practice at this year’s conference.

We are fortunate to have Professor John August from Texas A & M University, who is this year’s Evelyn Williams Visiting Scholar, and Emeritus Professor Paul Canfield as key note speakers. Both are eminent clinical scholars in their own fields and both boast a keen and proven track record in teaching and mentoring junior clinical veterinarians over many years.

Once again, there is no cost to our Partners in Veterinary Education to attend this conference or dinner. Last year’s dinner was a notable event and this year’s dinner and after dinner speaker should be a gold medal winner with a few surprises thrown in along the way. We are particularly grateful to our major sponsor Provet who have been supporting us from the very first conference in 2003 and to our other generous sponsors Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Royal Canin and IDEXX.

This year the conference has boldly gone where no other veterinary conference has gone and the Faculty and Sponsors challenge you to move outside your comfort zone to enter an ethereal world where satisfaction and pride come from inspiring others to achieve their best.
