ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR HANS HENRIK DIETZ - University of Copenhagen
Associate Professor Hans Henrik Dietz who is Head of Department of Large Animal Sciences in the Faculty of Life Sciences in the University of Copenhagen in Denmark (formerly the Royal Veterinary School). Hans was visiting Murdoch University with the international veterinary schools accreditation committee, but also chose to visit us to progress plans for increasing collaboration of our faculty with his school, as initiated with a visit by Professor Windsor to Copenahagen in June this year when he met with Professor Jorgen Agerholm and Hans at the Torstrup large animal teaching facility on the edge of Copenhagen (picture has Jorgen on left with Hans on right outside of isolation facility at Torstrup).
Jorgen is a pathologist and is now Professor of Reproduction, following his sabbatical here at Camden with Peter Windsor in 2006. The aim of this collaboration is to have final year veterinary students from both our faculties participating in 'exchange visits' to facilitate opportunities for enhanced 'global citizenship'. A Danish student has already expressed interest in coming to Camden. Other opportunities for collaborations are being explored as the Danes have a great interest in Australia.
