The growing use of simulation in veterinary education will be the focus of the sixth International Veterinary Simulation in Teaching (InVeST) Conference, scheduled for Oct. 17 to 19 in Knoxville, Tennessee.
The Lincoln Memorial University College of Veterinary Medicine reported Jan. 4 that it was chosen to host and organize the conference, which brings together researchers, developers and educators. The event was first held in 2011 at Colorado State University and in subsequent years took place in Canada, the Caribbean, Germany and South Africa.
“Being selected to host this international conference is a huge honor,” said Lincoln Memorial’s veterinary college dean, Jason Johnson, DVM, MS, DACT. “This is an incredible opportunity to demonstrate the innovative modeling and simulation techniques being implemented in our curriculum at LMU as well as to showcase the beauty of our Appalachian region to visitors from around the world.”
Lincoln Memorial’s main campus is 60 miles north of Knoxville, in Harrogate. Conference attendees will spend a day at the college’s DeBusk Veterinary Teaching Center in nearby Ewing, Virginia.
