The College is in its 50th year of focusing on evidence-based practice and pursuit of excellence in Veterinary Science. Dr Jane is already a Member by examination, in Small Animal Surgery. Now she will add Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation to her list of credentials. Her current role as an executive committee member for the VSRM chapter, is to help coordinate the Science Week conference in July this year on the Gold Coast.
Dr Jane says: ‘As ever, I am excited to be supporting and cultivating the development of veterinary physiotherapy and rehabilitation for all of Australasia.’
