Student 'Road-Tests' CVE Dermatology Seminar

By Sophie Huxley, 2017 CVE Student Ambassador

On the 23rd of June I was lucky enough to attend* the CVE Dermatology Seminar in Perth. As I am only a fourth year student at Murdoch University, I was a bit nervous about joining qualified veterinarians at the course as I thought I wouldn’t know enough about the topics presented. Once I arrived I realised I had nothing to be nervous about!

The speakers for the day were Dr Peter Hill, Dr Mandy Burrows and Dr Meng Siak. All of the topics were presented in a straightforward and understandable manner. Not only did I learn heaps of new things about veterinary dermatology but also everything I had learned at university so far was cemented in my brain for me!

In addition it was a great chance to meet other veterinarians and everyone was so friendly. I highly recommend other students to attend these courses, especially if they are being held in your city! They are a great chance to meet the veterinarians in your area and will only improve your skills for when you become a qualified new grad.

*Note: Sophie attended the seminar for free in her role as CVE Ambassador. The CVE has recruited volunteer Student Ambassadors at every Australasian university to spread the word about the Centre for Veterinary Education (CVE) and encourage all students to take advantage of the generous FREE Student Membership whose benefits mirror – and exceed – those provided to full-time veterinarians.

In return, we'd like each student who attends to write a brief summary about their experience (nothing arduous, just a couple of paragraphs) that the CVE can share with fellow students through various channels. See blog: Find the thought of enrolling in a CVE course whilst still a student a bit daunting? from August 2016.

Sophie loved the seminar and found that it reinforced everything she had learned at uni about Dermatology. This is not only a fantastic educational opportunity but also a chance to get out there and network with practising vets. It’s not what you know, it’s who you know...

Note: As a not-for-profit membership organisation, the CVE is unable to fund flights, accommodation or other sundry costs.
