The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies

Staff Elected Fellows of The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons

Five members of staff have been elected as Fellows of The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (FRCVS).

The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies has five members of staff among the forty-four veterinarians who have been elected as Fellows of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS). The Fellowship initiative was relaunched in April by the RCVS with new routes of entry, to enable a greater proportion of the profession to join its ranks.

There were five successful candidates from across the School, with four elected for ‘Meritorious Contributions to Knowledge’ and one for ‘Meritorious Contributions to Clinical Practice’ category.

The successful candidates were:

For Meritorious Contributions to Knowledge:

Professor David Argyle

Professor Paddy Dixon

Professor Bruce McGorum

Dr. Richard Mellanby

For Meritorious Contributions to Clinical Practice:

Professor Anna Meredith

 

The aim of the new Fellowship initiative is to advance and develop clinical and professional standards by providing a resource of independent knowledge for the benefit of the veterinary profession, the scientific community, and the general public as a whole.

“Fellowship is the highest status of membership of the College and so I’m very much looking forward to Fellowship Day to meet all those who were successful and celebrating with them this very significant achievement.

Nick BaconChair of the Fellowship Board

The School extends its congratulations to all of the successful candidates who were elected as Fellows.
