Martin Hawes and Arno Werners have recently established the Veterinary Educators in Pharmacology Special Interest Group (VEPSIG). The main objectives include sharing ideas and best practice approaches for teaching and learning veterinary  pharmacology, at  undergraduate and postgraduate level, as well as being a sounding board for veterinary pharmacology educators from around the globe. Furthermore, the group focusses on gathering evidence through the scholarship of teaching and learning with the ultimate goal to work towards competency-based veterinary pharmacology education. We extend an invitation to like-minded colleagues who wish to join our growing Group (currently 40 members from 16 countries).
