The annual Veterinary Education Symposium – VetEd – was established by a group of enthusiastic veterinary educators working in vet schools in the UK and Dublin. The symposium takes place over two days during the summer. It rotates around the schools and aims to be an economical way for veterinary educators to share ideas and innovations for teaching undergraduate and postgraduate vets.
The symposium has a friendly and inviting atmosphere. Invited keynote speakers are intended to be informative and stimulating. We do not have short communications but instead we invite posters and workshops. All posters are presented in a group session, as well as being displayed throughout the conference. Workshops are intended to be interactive and cover a wide variety of topics. Networking opportunities are emphasised throughout.
VetEd 2020 was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It will be hosted by the University of Surrey’s School of Veterinary Medicine in 2021. You can find out more on the VetEd 2020 website.
