Edinburgh vet lauded for excellence in teaching
A veterinary educator from the University of Edinburgh’s Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies has received a prestigious fellowship for contributions to learning and teaching.
Dr Neil Hudson has been awarded Principal Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy – the highest level of Fellowship offered by the Higher Education Academy.
It is awarded in recognition of sustained influence and contribution to learning and teaching in higher education. It also recognises effective strategic leadership and national and international influence.
Last year, Neil also received the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Diploma of Fellowship (FRCVS) – the highest status of membership of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons – for his work on veterinary student admissions.
Professor Susan Rhind, Director of Teaching at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, said: "We are thrilled for Neil to have secured these Fellowships that are a testament to his sustained commitment to teaching and learning in veterinary medical education."
Dr Neil Hudson, Senior Lecturer at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, said: "I am delighted to have been awarded these Fellowships. I could not have done this without the support of my superb colleagues and the wonderful students that we work with as partners in education here at the Dick Vet."
