EMS is the jewel in the crown of the UK’s veterinary education system. It’s highly valued by students, teachers, and the profession at large, but it’s not perfect. Students and academics worry about the availability and variable quality of placements. Practitioners worry about the engagement of students and understanding what is expected of them. And there are concerns that EMS causes financial worries and acts as a barrier to widening participation to the profession.
With the RCVS Graduate Outcomes project due to report at the end of the year, and new vet schools on the horizon, it’s time to ask whether the current system is truly sustainable.
