Sharing knowledge and experiences

You may wish to share with colleagues knowledge and experiences you have acquired overseas.  The Overseas Group is keen to receive feedback from vets, students and nurses which can be included in the overseas experiences section.  This provides valuable and interesting information for others who are considering undertaking similar work.  Please contact Susie Child susiec@bva.co.uk.
