This course provides an opportunity for students to integrate and synthesize professional skills in preparation for clinical rotations. Students will apply their knowledge of clinical communication, teamwork, clinical reasoning, ethics, and business management as they work through a series of group activities. The didactic portion of the course will focus on the professional roles and responsibilities of practicing veterinarians, and include information on inter-professional collaboration, communicating with the public and professional identity and management.

This course is part of the planned series in Clinical Reasoning, Problem Solving and Critical Thinking being developed as part of the broader revisions to the DVM curriculum.
