Top vets, academics and other animal health experts from all over Europe are in Brookmans Park for a two-day conference on the future of their profession.

The Royal Veterinary College is hosting the 30th General Assembly of the European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education, which accredits college courses across the continent.

The event, which started yesterday includes lectures, debates and training sessions, both at the Hawkshead Lane Campus and in the college’s Camden facilities.

College principal Stuart Reid said: “The RVC is delighted to host the General Assembly. The 200 delegates represent the veterinary schools of the continent and we are honoured to receive these colleagues.

“The RVC welcomes the visitors and restates its commitment to international inclusivity in animal health and welfare and its mission as a global force in veterinary education and science.”

The event concluded with an educational symposium featuring talks by speakers from Japan, Norway, and Grand Canary.
