  • Dr Liz Mossop

    I am a veterinary surgeon with expertise in the design and delivery of veterinary curricula. I have developed a range of innovative teaching approaches including teaching using social media and a veterinary business game. My research interests focus on the concept of professionalism in vets, and I am interested in the influence of the hidden curriculum (e.g. role models) on students as they become professionals. I also have expertise in veterinary patient safety and human factors, specifically communication skills and leadership.Preferred Media: TV and radio, Print, Online
