Fitzpatrick Referrals welcomes Japanese students to experience UK oncology care for the fourth year running
On 5th December, Fitzpatrick Referrals once again welcomed a group of veterinary students from Japan during their visit to the UK.
The visit marks the fourth year that students from the Renaissance Academy of Pet World, Japan were invited by Professor Nick Bacon at Fitzpatrick Referrals Oncology and Soft Tissue in Guildford.
A group of veterinary nursing students received a behind-the-scenes tour of the oncology and soft tissue hospital with Professor Nick Bacon to learn first-hand the patient’s journey at Fitzpatrick Referrals and the treatment options for cancer in companion animals. After a break for refreshments, the students attended a lecture by Senior Medical Oncology Nurse, Sarah Holliday on professional opportunities for UK veterinary nurses and by Senior Nurse in Interventional Radiology, Jen O’Keefe, who presented on interventional radiology nursing in the UK.
Clinical Director of Fitzpatrick Referrals Oncology and Soft Tissue, Professor Nick Bacon said:
Once again we were delighted to host a keen and enthusiastic group of students from Japan. We remain committed to sharing our ethos of cancer care as widely as possible and give our nurses a chance to lecture to their international colleagues. We look forward to welcoming the students from The Renaissance Academy of Pet World again next year.
The Renaissance Academy of Pet World in Japan visit the UK each year to learn the high standards of veterinary medicine and care provided. Fitzpatrick Referrals has gained worldwide recognition for its commitment to learning and sharing knowledge with global counterparts.
