Student satisfaction surveys such as the National Student Survey (NSS) can drive organisational change however they may not be specific enough to pinpoint areas for enhancement in distinct disciplines. The Dundee Ready Education Environment Measure (DREEM), a well-validated questionnaire developed for use in the health professions, was adapted for use in the veterinary education context and applied across a whole programme. Data from 452 out of 750 students illustrated that the student experience is less positive at key transition points such as entering the first year, moving from pre-clinical to clinical teaching and from classroom teaching into final year rotations. The results led to discussion about how to best to support students at these transition points and a number of initiatives are under way to achieve this. The DREEM will then be applied in the future to monitor their success and track the student experience longitudinally.
