VetSet2Go: Building Veterinary Employability - Showcase and Workshop

An OLT project final dissemination event

The VetSet2Go project (www.vetset2go.edu.au), which commenced in 2015, is a multi-national collaboration between 14 academics across veterinary schools in Australia (Murdoch, Queensland, Sydney, Adelaide), the United Kingdom (Edinburgh, Nottingham) and the United States (Washington State).

The project set out to explore what employability means in the veterinary context, to define the capabilities most important for employability and success in the veterinary profession, and create assessment tools and resources to build these capabilities.

Additional perspectives, including those of practitioners, professional bodies and interdisciplinary experts, were gathered through consultation, advisory groups, a world-first Veterinary Employability Forum (48 delegates in February 2017) and a Delphi process.

The evidence-based research culminated in development of the Veterinary Employability Framework (image opposite), which comprises of 18 capabilities within 5 domains, along with an online Assessment of Veterinary Employability (AVE).

This showcase workshop will be an opportunity for the Project Leader, A/Prof. Martin Cake of Murdoch University, to disseminate and discuss the Framework, AVE and other project findings. It will be of interest to many, including:

  • academics and clinicians actively engaged in the teaching and scholarship of veterinary professional practice; and
  • employability scholars in related disciplines.
