The development of clinical reasoning in veterinary students
Vinten, Claire (2016) The development of clinical reasoning in veterinary students. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
Clinical reasoning is the skill used when veterinary surgeons make a decision regarding the diagnosis, treatment plan or prognosis of a patient. Despite its necessity and ubiquity within clinical practice, very little is known about the development of clinical reasoning during undergraduate training. Even less is understood about how veterinary schools should be helping students improve this skill. The aim of the research presented within this thesis was to, firstly, examine the development of clinical reasoning ability within veterinary students and, secondly, to investigate possible methods to aid this process. The University of Nottingham School of Veterinary Medicine and Science (SVMS) was used as a case study for this research.
