How to improve EMS
Practical advice and top tips for students and practitioners
EMS placements are obviously a key part of the training of veterinary students. However, following discussions with RCVS and Universities, numerous areas of concern were highlighted in the current process. These included variation in experience, consistency, expectations, access to farm practices, expanding student numbers and cost considerations.
Within SPVS we cannot solve all problems relating to EMS, however what we would like to do is to help improve the delivery of EMS through providing advice, webinars, resources and approaches to make it go more smoothly for both student and practice.
SPVS has produced two videos offering practical advice and top tips on how to improve the EMS experience for both students and busy practitioners in conjunction with two downloadable guides, EMS Placement Health and Safety Guidance for Practices and EMS placement Health and Safety Self-Assessment for students.
The video below focuses on the particular challenges faced during Covid and offers solutions on how to get the best from EMS during these tricky times.
