Template for a Recommended Curriculum in "Veterinary Professional Development and Career Success"

J Vet Med Educ. Summer 2002;29(2):84-93. doi: 10.3138/jvme.29.2.84.


Recent studies of the veterinary profession have established a need for training in various areas beyond those directed toward building competence and proficiency as a clinician. To address this need, a workshop was designed whose objective was to develop a detailed outline of a model curriculum that would encompass the skills, knowledge, aptitudes, and attitudes deemed essential for economic success in the veterinary profession. The model curriculum was created from comprehensive input provided by consultants and educators. Constraints for implementation of this curriculum are identified, and future directions are discussed.
