RVC specialists share expertise with vets in Southeast Asia

Last updated 9 October 2013

Specialists from the Royal Veterinary College travelled from London to Bangkok to deliver lectures to veterinary practitioners and educators from across Southeast Asia.

The event attracted 60 experienced vets and veterinary academics from as far afield as Thailand, Vietnam. Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines.

The lectures, entitled 'Clinical problem solving in small animal practice' were delivered by RVC Director of Continuing Professional Development Jill Maddison and Vice-Principal David Church.

The event was organised by the Veterinary Practitioners Association of Thailand (VPAT) and sponsored by animal health company Zoetis. It was part on an initiative called 'Educating the Educators'.

The lectures are being followed up by a series of seven two-hour webinars, also delivered by Dr Maddison and Professor Church. These take place until the middle of November.

Commenting on the initial lectures in Bangkok, which happened on August 31st and September 1st, Dr Maddison said: "It was a great privilege to deliver a course in clinical problem solving to this group of highly-motivated and enthusiastic small animal practitioners and educators. The vision of VPAT and Zoetis in recognising the importance of clinical reasoning skills at all levels of small animal practice is truly admirable and we are very grateful to have this opportunity to connect with so many leading small animal veterinarians in Southeast Asia."
