Center for Research and Innovation in Veterinary and Medical Education


Enhancing veterinary student outcomes through scholarly teaching and learning innovations

CENTERED ON INNOVATIVE PEDAGOGICAL TOOLS AND NEW CURRICULA APPROACHES 

 

Facilitating the application of acquired basic veterinary science knowledge to clinical professional training.

We’re focused on veterinary research programs that develop and evaluate  innovative and interactive DVM teaching technologies and strategies, including communication, simulation and mobile gaming, faculty development, and student and learning outcomes. The rolling semester system of RUSVM lends itself well to studies to enhance education, as pedagogical tools can be introduced, evaluated and modified rapidly as semesters are repeated three times per year.

FOSTERING ENHANCED DVM AND PARTNER ENGAGEMENT

The Center for Research and Innovation in Veterinary and Medical Education is adding to the body of knowledge aimed to improve student learning through pedagogically informed strategies and course design.
