“This book is long overdue in veterinary education. Many veterinary colleges are focused on innovative learning and new teaching strategies, but a resource that focuses specifically on the unique challenges of veterinary medicine was not available. Now it is, and any veterinary medical educator who wants to improve the profession by starting with the education of our students should read this book” Sara L Connolly, DVM, MS, DACVP, University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine on behalf of Doody’s

“Veterinary Medical Education: A Practical Guide is an in-depth and comprehensive, yet practical, guide for individuals interested in optimizing the way that veterinary students are trained and equipped. This book is a tremendous resource for those trained in education who seek insight into the nuances of veterinary medicine, as well as veterinarians who aim to increase their knowledge regarding the science of teaching and learning….This innovative, comprehensive resource will undoubtedly be viewed as an indispensable textbook for all who seek to improve their own educational practice, optimize the learning environment, and progress veterinary medical education into a relevant and impactful future."
