VAHL: Achieving goals even in difficult times!


Together to the goal!

Despite Covid, the CCRP courses including the practical days could take place worldwide and a new VMPT course was started in August 2020 in Munich.

The concept of the Veterinary Academy of Higher Learning (VAHL) worked.

What seemed impossible at first was able to take place thanks to the network and flexibility of VAHL: The attendance days! In Australia, they had to be offered decentrally, since even traveling between the territories was not permitted - an insurmountable hurdle ?


Not for VAHL: Attendance days were held in Brisbane and Perth in Australia and in Levine/New Zealand according to the registered participants. The local team (all experienced CCRPers) led the respective groups on site, while Prof. Millis from USA and Dr. Egner from Germany were connected via zoom. A bit of a challenge, as night shifts were also necessary due to the time difference . "No problem," said Dr. Egner, "the important thing is that we don't disappoint the trust placed in us. Even in a pandemic, there has to be a solution." And there was. The operation started punctually at 10 p.m. in Germany, in the U.S. it was only 4 p.m. whereas in Australia and New Zealand it started between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. the next day. Through the zoom transmission, the exercises could also be controlled, commented and thus successfully carried out from the USA and Europe. Similarly, the attendance days took place in the European countries. In addition, VAHL initiated live Zoom Classrooms - a very popular option to discuss cases interactively. Instead of less- so more!
