Cahir KingOn Tuesday 2 October 2012 the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS), the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) and the Royal College of Pathologists (RC Path), in conjunction with the Health Protection Agency (HPA), collaborated on a symposium in the spirit of ‘one medicine’ on the sources of antimicrobial resistance in animals and humans, and the flow of resistance between them and the environment.

Our bursary winners were Cahir King, a practitioner from Downe Veterinary Clinic in County Down, Northern Ireland, and James Swann, a Junior Clinical Training Scholar (Small Animal) at the Royal Veterinary College.
