This week we are excited to be joined by Dr. Jaime Perkins.

Dr. Jamie Perkins is a 2017 DVM graduate and is currently a tenure track assistant professor of veterinary medicine at the University of Arizona College of Veterinary Medicine. Prior to joining the Arizona-CVM, she was an Assistant Professor within the Lincoln Memorial University College of Veterinary Medicine Center for Innovation in Veterinary Education and Technology (CIVET).

Dr. Perkins has won international awards for development of novel veterinary education tools, including those on Amazon Alexa’s platform. She has authored over 26-E Books and has received over $400,000.00 in intra and extramural research funding to date, and is currently tackling multiple projects to advance veterinary education using technology.

Topics of this unique conversation include:

  • Innovative projects using Alexa skills through Amazon to teach veterinary students communication skills in an advanced interactive manner
  • Winning the 2018 Hyperdrive contest at the DevLearn Conferences and how she’s turned that into a large USDA grant working on multiple projects
  • How she leads her team while continuing to gain knowledge from key mentors

Thank you to Jaime for taking the time to come on the show and share the details of numerous projects that are making an impact in the education of veterinary professionals.
