Workshop on Fundamentals in Veterinary Education – Bologna, Italy

The first Italian workshop on "Fundamentals in Veterinary Education" was held in Bologna (July 8-11 2019), led by Professor Ayona Silva-Fletcher, and colleagues from the LIVE Centre at the Royal Veterinary College, responsible for the RVC’s pioneering MSc in Veterinary Education. The 4-day workshop covered key principles and practices in veterinary education. The topics covered in the workshop are aligned with the taught component of the first module of the RVC’s Postgraduate Certificate programme in Veterinary Education.

Twenty-six participants from 11 out of the 13 Veterinary Italian Schools attended this formative and interactive workshop. The workshop has provided a platform for further events to share best practice and develop novel, evidence-based approaches to veterinary education.  These will be organized in the future based on the enthusiastic feedback of participants from all over the Italy.
