Evidence-based Veterinary Medicine
Clinical research in practice setting searches for differences in clinical as well economic effects between care options. At the EBVM centre we combine expertise on epidemiology, methodology, statistical analysis and veterinary economics to fully support veterinarians in carrying out clinical research.
