Dr Kate Flay, Assistant Professor in Production Animal Health, joined the VCS team in January 2021. Kate comes to CityU from the Veterinary School at Massey University, New Zealand where she was Lecturer in pastoral livestock health. Kate’s research program aims to improve the health, welfare and productivity of farmed animals. Hong Kong, typically known for its vibrant cityscape, is also home to cattle, buffalo and goats. Kate is developing JCCs ruminant ambulatory service to assist the local community as well as providing student learning and research opportunities.
Opening of Clinical Skills Laboratory
We are delighted to announce the opening of JCCs updated clinical skills laboratory, a project ably led by Assistant Prof Rebecca Parkes. The models and simulators in the lab allow students to practice skills from basic animal handling to surgery and cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The unlimited opportunities for hands-on skills development before encountering live animals improves both student confidence and animal welfare. Our team is also actively involved in developing novel veterinary simulators and conducting pedagogical research to evaluate their effectiveness.
