The Association of Veterinary Students welcomes Mr Robinson’s comments on updating the structure of EMS to keep pace with the profession. In the recent AVS/BVA survey 17% of students said they felt unsure the course was preparing them for their career, with 44% stating that more practical experience would be beneficial. We are grateful that this issue was raised and are happy to contribute upon further drafts of the three year plan.
