DOI 10.3138/JVME.1117-158R1 We've made enough models to know we can create a cost-effective trainer for canine castration. But how close are students' performance scores on the model to their scores on live dogs?

    Which model taught is best? Are more expensive, realistic suturing trainers worth the cost?

A RANDOMIZED TRIAL COMPARING FREELY MOVING AND ZONAL INSTRUCTION OF VETERINARY SURGICAL SKILLS USING OVARIOHYSTERECTOMY MODELS. JOURNAL OF VETERINARY MEDICAL EDUCATION. 2019. 46(2):195-204. DOI 10.3138/JVME.0817-009R

    Should surgical skills instructors circulate the laboratory answering student questions, or should they be assigned to a particular small group of students? Does it matter?

EFFECT OF DIFFERENT INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS IN ISOLATION WARDS ON CONTAMINATION AND PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT PROTOCOL ADHERENCE IN VETERINARY STUDENTS. JOURNAL OF VETERINARY MEDICAL EDUCATION. 2019. 46(1):81-90. DOI 10.3138/JVME.0417-053R

    When teaching students to wear personal protective equipment to work in isolation wards, are they more likely to follow instructions when provided from a video, a chart, or both?

    With so many different methods for handling dogs and cats out there, how can faculty agree on one method to teach to students?

    Can we reliably evaluate students’ surgical skills using GoPro cameras?

    Spoiler: Yes, and we’ve since used GoPros in many of our research studies requiring performance assessment.

    Sure, we can create a model that doesn't kick or bite, never runs out of blood, and allows unlimited practice with blood draws, IV catheter placement, and injections. But will model-trained students perform these tasks on the live horse as well as students who trained on a cadaver?

    If a student pursues surgical experience outside of veterinary school, are they ahead of their peers in skills when they start live surgery in veterinary school?

    Spoiler: the surprise answer is… no!
