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.
CENTER FOR RESEARCH AND INNOVATION IN VETERINARY AND MEDICAL EDUCATION FOCUS AREAS
We seek to support work on the adaptive challenges of veterinary and medical education through the dissemination of innovations.
From veterinary students and faculty partnering to develop a virtual three-dimensional interactive touch screen canine anatomy table to investigating mind-body therapies to reduce work-related stress in veterinary academics, our researchers are strengthening student and faculty teaching and learning approaches.
