My research project
Student preparedness for veterinary workplace clinical training
In the final year of a veterinary medicine degree, students spend their time working and learning in real life veterinary practice (workplace clinical training). The transition from the classroom to the veterinary clinic can be challenging for students, and the difficulties are often attributed to a lack of preparedness. My PhD project is exploring what it means for veterinary students to be well-prepared for workplace clinical training. The outcomes of the project will help to inform veterinary curricula to better prepare students in the hope that it can alleviate student stress during the transition and provide students with the tools to learn effectively in their workplace clinical training.
