We have recently created a promotional flier for WikiVet as we are looking to recruit even more new students this year than ever before. We hope you will print out the flier and then be inspired to email it around to new students, distribute it as a handout or even stick it on a noticeboard.
VetDoc Spain 2014
For the first time ever a Spanish language equivalent (VetDoc) of the well know VetEd Symposium was held over the weekend in Lugo, Galicia. It was a great success with more than 60 attendees and a member of the WikiVet team went along as well. Numerous interesting posters were presented with some great ideas and fantastic resources which are now being used in the veterinary syllabus in Spain. If you are interested in learning more about what went on and having a look at some of the innovative work more information can be found on the VetDoc site.

Each link includes a summary to indicate how these resources might be of value. 22nd August 2014
