ABSTRACT
The article reports on the proposals of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons' (RCVS) working party to improve the efficacy of extramural studies (EMS) in veterinary education. The party suggests that the phasing of the 26 weeks of EMS should be changed to enable students experience varied veterinary work and allow them to select an area of practice where they wish to focus on. It also suggests that some parts of the veterinary degree should be redefined to allow students avail loans.
