He now teaches ophthalmology there running the ophthalmology clinic. His is a diplomate of the European College of Animal Welfare and Behaviour Medicine, has a Masters in Education and is currently undertaking a Doctorate in that subject, focussing on the teaching of veterinary ethics and animal welfare. He has always had a great interest in continuing education and provides cpd lectures in ophthalmology and animal welfare nationally and internationally so is delighted to be involved in WikiVet.
