AVC's Dr. Leigh Lamont - Grant Recipient for Innovation in Teaching Methodology
...Dr. Leigh Lamont, Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology in the Department of Companion Animals at AVC, was the recipient of Pfizer's 2007 Grant for Innovation in Teaching Methodology. Dr. Lamont
has a special interest in developing new techniques for teaching and assessing clinical competencies as they relate to anesthesia.The funds awarded through the grant went to purchase a new user-friendly software program that will allow Dr. Lamont to design interactive case-based scenarios for students without requiring extensive programming knowledge or advanced multimedia skills.
These scenarios will be utilized to reinforce a single key concept in the pre-clinical years, but will subsequently be expanded to encompass multiple aspects of anesthetic case management.Dr. Lamont hopes to have a preliminary set of basic scenarios completed by next year to use in the second year of the program, with more to follow.
"This is a well-deserved grant for Dr. Lamont
