It was so lovely to be back as one of the teachers of the Graduate Diploma in Animal Biomechanical Medicine. It’s been three and a half years since the last course finished. Yesterday I turned up to be greeted by so many smiles and welcomes from my fellow teachers and students. Most of these students I had never met before. One of them turned out to be an old classmate of mine way back when I was a vet student. Another is a fellow integrative vet that I had only known through social media and last but not least my fellow vet from around the corner in Belmont who I had persuaded to enrol in the course because it would change her life (it certainly changed mine when I tentatively dipped my toe in the chiropractic world way back in 1998). The other students were a mix of veterinarians, chiropractors and osteopaths. All of them have a common passion in trying to help our dogs and horses through a better understanding of their biomechanics.
Teaching a course such as this is part of my secret strategy to spread the word and hopefully reduce my workload one day. My friends tell me that this is never going to happen though as I like being busy!
