Project summary

The wider project objective is to achieve graduation of highly competent veterinary surgeons recognized by European Union (Directive 2005/36 EU), Serbian veterinary legislation and labour market. Specific objectives are to: a) upgrade veterinary curricula focused on "clinical teaching" methodology, introduce modern veterinary specialist courses and novel course in organic livestock production; b) obtain a broad overview of the present status and perspectives of the veterinary profession in Serbia and the place of veterinary education within the profession.

These objectives should be achieved through a joint effort of 3 Serbian universities/faculties in cooperation with 2 nonacademic institutions (Veterinary Directorate and Veterinary Chamber of Serbia) and 4 EU universities with substantial expertise and approved veterinary teaching facilities.

The principal outcomes will be a) upgraded veterinary curricula with incorporated "clinical teaching methodology" in compliance with EU standards; b) new veterinary specialist curricula in compliance with Serbian Law on Veterinary Matters; c) new curriculum in organic livestock production and c) comprehensive survey on the "Present state of the veterinary profession in Serbia and vision for the future".

Upgraded and new curricula should make a significant impact on the future quality and recognition of veterinary services at all levels, on animal health and welfare, food safety and agricultural economy in Serbia. Results of the survey should instigate profession wide debate on direction of the future development of the veterinary medical profession.

Objectives

1st specific objective unifies the academic outcome of the project made in wide cooperation with EU partners. Upon analysis, FVMB & DVMNS graduate curricula should be upgraded to comply to SOP-EAEVE, enabling faculties to initiate the evaluation/approval procedures at the appropriate time for each faculty. Focus of curricular reform will be on the introduction of "veterinary clinical teaching" methodology to suit the needs of the profession. Veterinary specialist courses will be introduced at FVMB in cooperation with VD and VCS. Novel undergraduate curriculum on organic livestock production will be introduced at EUSK.

2nd specific objective aims at an insight on status and perspectives of the veterinary profession in RS. The broad survey among all levels of the veterinary profession will be conducted in cooperation with major stakeholders. The benefit for the system of veterinary education in Serbia will be reflected in the possibility to plan further development on firm facts.
