This week, we speak to the wonderful Dr Hannah Perrin – a leading figure in veterinary education. She’s worked with Street Vet, Veterinary Management Group, and lectures at the Royal Veterinary College. We talk leadership, education, and identity in the veterinary profession, with Hannah delivering an excellent 60-second CPD on how to build a support network as a leader.

Hannah originally qualified as a pharmacologist, before becoming a practice manager in a specialist exotics practice. Working alongside a variety of professionals from specialists and students, she developed a keen interest in education, research and leadership. Hannah discusses how varied and rewarding teaching can be, and how we can positively influence others through our leadership and teaching style.

In 2010 she went back to school for a part-time Master’s degree in Health Services Research while consulting for a variety of first opinion and referral practices, followed by a PhD in Veterinary Education focusing on the development of professional identity in vet students and the transition from student to practice.

She is now Learning and Development lead for VMG (Veterinary Management Group) and Course Director for the VMG/ILM Award, Certificate and Diploma in Veterinary Leadership and Management. Alongside her professional interests, Hannah loves Parkrun, coffee and cake.
