Royal Highland Show 2015
Clinicians and staff from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies spent four days at the Royal Highland Show in June, meeting the public and informing them about our work.
The School has been attending the Highland Show for eight years and as well as providing veterinary care for the thousands of animals who come to compete, we have a joint stand in the exhibition area with our colleagues from The Roslin Institute.
This year the stand featured the Internal Medicine Service, with activities designed to educate and inform the visitors about our work and clinicians from the service manning the stand.
As well as informing the public about the School and our service, we had many future vets visit the stand to talk about getting into veterinary school, as well as alumni, our colleagues in practice and many members of the public.
The Royal Highland Show attracts around two hundred thousand visitors from across Scotland and is a unique opportunity to engage with the public, share the activities we undertake in the School and educate them about our research and clinical work.
