Dr Louisa Slingsby

Biography

Teaches
BVSc Veterinary Science

After I graduated from Bristol Vet School in 1994 I worked for a period in mixed, mainly small animal practice in North Somerset, continuing to do so while undertaking a PhD in Bristol. Since completing my PhD in 1998 I spent the next 14 years working part time at Bristol undertaking research in clinical analgesia in the dog and cat alongside starting a family. In 2013, I started to move away from clinical research and into teaching and related academic roles. I now teach professional skills to undergraduate vet students and am responsible for the Professional Studies Units across all 5 years of the BVSc programme.  Additionally, I have been Vet School Admissions Tutor from 2013 to 2018 and Faculty Admissions and Recruitment Office for the Faculty of Health Sciences since 2015. My current interests are introducing mental wellbeing training to the student population and selection of students onto healthcare programmes focussing on widening participation.
