Veterinary Medical Education: A Practical Guide offers a complete resource to fundamental information on key areas of veterinary education.
Veterinary Medical Education – A Practical Guide
Veterinary medicine is unique among the health sciences due to the breadth of veterinary practice and the expertise required of Day One graduates. These expectations underlie the challenges faced by veterinary medical educators within a changing world that has included signiﬁcant advancements in veterinary knowledge and the technology with which this may be delivered.
Similar to medical education, veterinary medical education has been undergoing a transformation to develop educational methods that best prepare our graduates for these challenges in twenty-ﬁrst-century veterinary practice. In this textbook we have tried to capture these initiatives, share new ideas, engage educators, and encourage further development so that veterinary medical education continues to advance.
Another goal of this book was to provide practical guidance for teachers, both inexperienced and experienced, in veterinary medical education. Most importantly, Veterinary Medical Education: A Practical Guide aims to be accessible and useful to the reader, so that they can assimilate the information and tips into their preclinical and clinical teaching as well as other academic activities.
