Dr Rachel Whittington

Rachel's secondment will focus on exploring the link between mind-set, ability and feedback in veterinary medicine education. This will have close links to the development of new student support (personal tutor) arrangements in the School and also provide us with an excellent opportunity to strengthen links between the IAD and Veterinary Medicine.
