Having a look beyond ones nose can bring new ideas. For that reason we are in contact with other Skills Labs world wide and visit conferences and congresses about veterinary medical education and skills training. Furthermore PAUL is often part of different university events like Leipziger Tierärztekongress, Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften (science night) or Veterinary Day.

PAUL on tour

Even in its infancy PAUL has been present in different events. With our simulators we could and can show insights into practical training in veterinary medicine to experts on one hand and the public on the other hand. During the fesitivity about 600 years of university medicine we transported a human medicine colleagues and any other interested into the anatomical structures of a cow and let them diagnose chess pieces instead of real gestation diagnostics.

Every two years the Leipziger Tierärztekongress is a stage to present to all generations of veterinarians and the science night "Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften" entices visitors to enter PAUL.

In addition there are various intern events at Faculty of Veterinary Medicine like first year student eve,Veterinary Day and many more.
