Veterinary Education Symposium, Dublin 2013

I was fortunate to be one of about one hundred participants at the Veterinary Education Symposium in Dublin last week.


It was a great occasion to meet other enthusiastic people involved in veterinary education (research and teaching). It was well organised particularly by the friendly people at University College Dublin and in a good location.


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


1) Teaching: Veterinary Education Symposium 2013:

Connecting Veterinary and Human Medicine in Challenging Subjects. With Dr Rob Burnie.


2) Teaching: Veterinary Education Symposium 2013:

CPD for Veterinary Reception Staff: Optimising the Benefits for Staff and the Practice. With Bernice Fitzmaurice, MRCVS, Riverside Veterinary Care


3)  Teaching: Veterinary Education Symposium 2013:

Veterinary Students’ Attitudes towards Learning Resources: the PublishOER Project. With Gillian Brown, Dr Liz Mossop, Nick Short.


4) Teaching: Veterinary Education Symposium 2013:

Using the Humanities in Veterinary Education. With Dr Andrew Gardiner.


I hope any veterinary educators and anyone else who attended the symposium and who is interested in exploring collaborations on these topics will contact me via the website or via <>

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.
