The poster describes our focus on professional laboratory roles, using the example of the Named Veterinary Surgeon. The complex and potentially conflicted responsibilities of these individuals are explored through three preliminary research themes, opening up questions of policy, practice, and ethics.

Our questions for workshop participants include:

  • Is the Named Veterinary Surgeon conflicted when using a personal licence to assist with research and training?
  • How can the transfer of knowledge between the veterinary and research communities be improved?
  • Does the Named Veterinary Surgeon have a professional responsibility towards human medical patients?
