Using the humanities in veterinary education (Workshop)

Iain Robbé, Andrew Gardiner

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

Veterinary practice is more than biomedicine with its emphasis on the cognitive and psychomotor domains and competencies in the affective domain are achieving greater prominence in undergraduate veterinary education. There are increasing concerns about the mental and physical health of veterinary students as they strive to cope with expanding contents of the curriculum, the requirements for lifelong learning and multiprofessional practice, and the rising demands of informed clients.

This workshop proposes the overall aim of discussing how the humanities can be used to contribute to producing “Day One” graduate vets who are affectively, cognitively and psychomotor competent, socially and culturally aware, and able to think creatively and critically.

The workshop’s objectives are (1) to explore the use of the humanities in veterinary education (2) to compare the contexts where the participants have used the humanities (3) to offer ideas for the participants to use in their teaching.
