Abstract

‘The EMS Driving Licence’ (www.vet.ed.ac.uk/ems_driving_licence) is an output of a collaborative research project which produced and evaluated an innovative online computer aided learning (CAL) programme to prepare students for extramural study (EMS) placements.
Our national accrediting body (the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons) has now endorsed and included it in it’s EMS Recommendations to the UK veterinary profession. In addition, the EMS Driving Licence has attracted reports in the Times Higher Education Supplement, the Veterinary Record and the Veterinary Times, and has been endorsed by XL Vets (a major group of progressive livestock-focussed veterinary practices) who now require students to show their ‘certificate of completion’ of the EMS Driving Licence before starting EMS placements at their practices.
More recently further versions of the Driving Licence have been produced for both veterinary nurses and preclinial veterinary students who are about to start their Animal Husbandry EMS placements
