The New RCVS Fellowship by Bradley Viner & Gayle Hallowell. In the webinar, RCVS President Bradley Viner and Fellowship Appointment Group Member Gayle Hallowell will introduce the new RCVS Fellowship scheme. They will explain the origins of the scheme, the criteria for achieving Fellowship, and the application process.
Bradley Viner was made President of the RCVS in July 2015. Bradley qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in 1978 and after a year working as an assistant established his own small animal practice in Pinner, Middlesex. This has now grown to a group of five practices in North West London, employing approximately 40 support staff and nine veterinary surgeons, including his son, Oliver. He has been involved in a wide variety of media and PR work on radio, television, books and the press. He is best known within the veterinary profession for his regular ‘Reflections’ column in the Veterinary Times. His passion is for recognition of the skills required to become an advanced general practitioner, and to that end completed an MSc and then a Professional Doctorate with Middlesex University, concentrating on the application of clinical auditing to the veterinary profession.
Gayle graduated from the University of Cambridge and completed an equine internship and then large animal medicine and critical care residency at the Royal Veterinary College. She then completed a PhD investigating aortic valve prolapse in the horse at the University of Nottingham. She is currently Associate Professor in Large Animal Internal Medicine and Critical Care. She is an RCVS Specialist in Equine Internal Medicine, RCVS Specialist in Emergency and Critical Care, American Specialist in Large Animal Internal Medicine, American Specialist in Large Animal Emergency and Critical Care, Associate Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging and Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. She has been a member of the RCVS Fellowship Board Appointment Group since October 2015.
