This unit extends students' foundational knowledge and skills for working effectively as a veterinary professional, by introducing key concepts in Practice Management. The unit also builds on and extends students' application of professional competencies introduced in VETS6101 (The Veterinary Professional 1) and (VETS6201 The Veterinary Professional 2) including communication, teamwork, cultural competence, professional reasoning, leadership and selfcare. It utilises a case-based approach to aid understanding of financial, legal and ethical perspectives in the management of problems encountered in Veterinary Practice. Students are given opportunities to review, critically evaluate and present their findings on case studies that reflect real life veterinary challenges. This is supplemented with keynote presentations from professional experts in business, finance and law. Specifically this will facilitate students' preparedness for clinical placements in DVM4 and Clinical Practice beyond graduation.
