Education

Last changed: 20 February 2019

We teach a number of different student groups as well as different professional target groups and the general public.

Teaching at SLU

At SLU, our team mainly teaches veterinary students. The students first encounter us to learn about surgical principles and pain evaluation. anatomy of the horse's musculoskeletal system. Later in the veterinary program, we supervise degree projects during the final semester of the veterinary curriculum. Below are samples of master thesis in veterinary science that Pia Haubro Andersen has supervised:

Teaching different professional groups

Outside of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, we have lectured not only for professional equine veterinarians and animal nursing staff, but also for other equine interest groups.

 

Teaching the general public

Finally, we have also presented research for horse owners inside and outside of the university campus as well as various government institutions such as the Swedish Board of Agriculture. In addition, we have been featured on the Swedish equivalent of BBC, Sveriges Radio, the national Swedish public broadcasting company.
