News: Veterinary Education Symposium 2012

I am fortunate to be participating in the Veterinary Education Symposium in Edinburgh in July, 2012.


It will be a great opportunity to work with people from veterinary education on research and teaching issues that affect human and animal health.


I have posted three entries in the Teaching category of this website:


1) Teaching: Veterinary Education Symposium: Anthrozoology, the One Health Initiative, and Addressing Inequalities through Education and Research.


2) Teaching: Veterinary Education Symposium: The Hidden Curriculum: What Does It Look Like and How Might It Be Influencing our Students? With Dr Liz Mossop.


3) Teaching: Veterinary Education Symposium: Exploring Cross-disciplinary Learning (through the Arts and Humanities) in Veterinary Education. With Dr Andrew Gardiner.


I hope any veterinary educators who are interested in exploring collaborations on these topics will contact me via the website.

About Iain Robbe

I am a medical practitioner (MB, BS, 1980; MRCS, LRCP, 1980) registered with the General Medical Council of the United Kingdom. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic I have reactivated my licence to practise and I am providing telephone support to vulnerable elderly to assist them during the pandemic. I remain active as a Clinical Medical Educationist participating in a number of projects with the universities of St Mary’s and Dalhousie in Nova Scotia and Mount Allison in New Brunswick, inter alia, and separately with three of the veterinary schools in the UK. My focus is on teaching and research in professionalism, ethics, and communications, and particularly the influences of vernacular architecture on the creation of positive learning experiences in undergraduate and postgraduate medical education. I have the degree of Master in Public Health from the University of London (1985) and the degree of Master in Medical Education with distinction from the University of Wales (2001). The guiding principles in my practices are based on andragogy and humanism, and the prime ethical principle of autonomy for the individual and in population health.
