To enhance the ability of lecturers to write Community Service proposals and obtain funding from the Directorate of Research, Technology Research, and Community Service (DRTPM) of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology (Kemendikbudristek), the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Syiah Kuala University (FVM USK) held a Workshop and Coaching Clinic on Tuesday, March 5, 2024, at the FKH USK Auditorium. The event featured Prof. Dr. drh. Raden Wisnu Nurcahyo, DVM, who is a National Reviewer of Community Service Proposals for DRTPM and also a lecturer at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM). The event was attended by 20 FKH USK lecturers who had prepared draft proposals.

The workshop was opened by the Dean of FVM USK, Drh. Teuku Reza Ferasyi, M.Sc., PhD., aimed to enhance the proposal writing skills of lecturers within FVM USK. The Dean expressed gratitude to Prof. Dr. drh. Raden Wisnu Nurcahyo, DVM, for being the speaker despite his busy schedule. It is hoped that after attending this workshop and coaching clinic, there will be several proposals from FVM USK lecturers that pass and are funded by DRTPM.

The event was moderated by Prof. Dr. drh. Muhammad Hanafiah, M.P, a lecturer at the Parasitology Laboratory, FVM USK. In his presentation, Prof. Dr. drh.
