Course description

Subject responsibility: Dr. László Ózsvári, full professor

General aim of the course: society expects veterinarians not only to have a broad knowledge of veterinary medicine and to be able to perform a wide range of professional activities independently and routinely, but also to be able to cooperate with colleagues, communicate, manage a practice or even to self-educate. Our profession requires competence in many areas. These skills are what the English literature calls “life skills. Training in higher education, including for veterinary students, is constantly evolving to meet the changing needs of the times and new opportunities. Today, this includes the teaching of non-vocational competences.

The 3 themes chosen are communication, digital skills and entrepreneurial skills, which are all essential for a future veterinarian.

The new student expectations suggest that the new generation of students needs different types of knowledge and development than previous students, and that the first day competences after graduation are not limited to veterinary knowledge.
