1862-2012 5-7 October 2012

The Programme


In 2012 the School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Glasgow, celebrates 150 years since its foundation by James McCall in 1862. This milestone is being marked by a celebratory CPD weekend on 5 - 7 October 2012 attended by alumni, VIPs, staff, students, veterinary surgeons and friends of the School. The event will launch with a ‘New Horizons’ programme and the McCall lecture on Friday 5 October followed on Saturday with a three streamed CPD lecture programme (small animal, equine and farm animal) and a commercial exhibition. On Sunday there will be an interactive modular programme. The social programme includes a drinks reception on the Friday evening at the University of Glasgow, a gala banquet and ceilidh on the Saturday evening, concluding with brunch on Sunday at Garscube campus. The 150th Celebratory Weekend is an excellent opportunity to interact with a wide range of veterinary surgeons and scientists from UK and overseas in relaxed, informal surroundings. I hope that you will want to be part of this prestigious event and look forward to meeting you.

Glasgow is one of Europe’s most exciting destinations, which combines the energy and sophistication of a great international city with some of Scotland’s most spectacular scenery. Named by Lonely Planet as one of the world’s top ten must-see cities (2009), Glasgow is home to more than 20 world class museums and art galleries. The city’s impressive portfolio includes the internationally renowned Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum - Scotland’s most visited free tourist attraction. With its eclectically arranged, eye-catching exhibits, Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum remains one of the largest and most popular museums in the UK. The city’s famous Burrell Collection is also not to be missed and the Hunterian, attached to the 15th century University of Glasgow, is the oldest public museum in Scotland. Glasgow’s iconic new Riverside Museum, a breathtaking landmark building on the banks of the River Clyde and a fitting home for the city’s world-class transport collection. The building’s dramatic design is award winning architect Zaha Hadid’s interpretation of the city and the river. The Tall Ship SV Glenlee is permanently berthed beside the Riverside Museum. Barcelona has Gaudí, Chicago has Frank Lloyd Wright – Glasgow has the Art Nouveau magic of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. His innovative and influential style can be seen throughout the city, and includes The Glasgow School of Art. No visit is complete without experiencing his work. The city’s unique style is stamped on its year-round events programme, which offers live performances, festivals and entertainment fifty-two weeks of the year and the recent designation as a UNESCO City of Music, has firmly set the seal on Glasgow’s reputation as one of Europe’s premier cultural capitals. Glasgow is also a shopper’s paradise - the city’s Buchanan Street has recently been voted one of the world’s top 10 shopping streets. Glasgow is home to shops to suit all styles from international high street stores to designer boutiques.
