Visiting lectureship: providing lessons in the art of veterinary practice
  1. Alan Leyland

    Alan Leyland qualified from Liverpool in 1968 and works in small animal practice in Wallasey, Merseyside. He was a visiting lecturer to the University of Liverpool between 1998 and 2002. He was president of the Society of Practising Veterinary Surgeons in 1998/99.


AS the veterinary curriculum gets increasingly crowded, opportunities for general practitioners to show students something of the art of the profession are becoming fewer and need to be grasped. For Alan Leyland, an invitation to talk to third-year veterinary students about practical aspects of antibiotic use proved a good way for him to share his knowledge and give something back to his profession. There were other benefits, too. The experience provided an interesting diversion from practice life - and a chance to learn something himself.
