Mark Westman doesn’t do things by halves.
He’s the sort of person who decides to do something and then jumps in ‘boots and all’ – that’s how you extract the most out of life.
Apart from his impressive veterinary credentials, Mark also co-founded ‘Pets in the Park’ in 2012, an Australian charity dedicated to providing free veterinary care to pets owned by the homeless. He’s also volunteered for veterinary programs in Papua New Guinea, Thailand, Indonesia and India.
He’s a much loved and highly regarded lecturer at the University of Sydney. But now we have the opportunity to share him with YOU, wherever you live, through this exciting 24-hour live streaming event.
The top 3 reasons Mark believes Vet Students and Vet Nurses should register for this event. Because:-
The first of anything is always THE BEST! This is the inaugural WikiVet LIVE! event and will undoubtedly be talked about by veterinary students for generations to come.
What else would you rather be doing on a Saturday than being a nerd and learning for 24 HOURS STRAIGHT…? (BTW, that was a rhetorical question, don’t bother emailing me your suggestions.)
When lots of veterinary students get together from all over the world, even if they are all sitting at home in their underwear and not physically interacting with each other, COLLEGIALITY and FRIENDSHIP within the profession grows.
So come on veterinary students and nurses of the world – get behind this great idea!
