    Dr Bernard Vallat, Director General of the OIE, talks about the need for an evolving veterinary education.

Paris, 16 November 2009 – World Deans and Directors of veterinary training institutions and key national veterinary education policy makers provided their final contributions for the making of the first global recommendations on veterinary education.

Participants have provided great collaborative work in commenting on the initial draft of recommendations presented to them at the OIE conference «Evolving veterinary education for a safer world” (12-14 October 2009, Paris, France). Their comments led to the way veterinary education must evolve worldwide and the role the OIE and partners will undertake in supporting this evolution.

The Organising committee of the Conference processed all the contributions received and summarised the final recommendations which are now available online here: .
