We are pleased to announce that the APVMA is in the process of creating “VetVids” - a series of videos and recordings about unusual and exciting careers in veterinary medicine! Presented here is the very first VetVids podcast with Dr. Adam Leff, Microbiologist and DVM from Kent State University. This podcast emphasizes what veterinary medicine can be like in unusual careers outside of the clinic world. Dr. Leff works as a professor and research scientist studying microbial pathogens in aquatic organisms native to Ohio. Listen in to find out about what it's like to be a DVM and Microbiologist from our interview with Dr. Leff!
I am very excited to announce that APVMA is officially accepting submissions for our "APVMA Animal and Veterinary Experience Guide". As I promised, I want to help strengthen Pre-Veterinary resources on a local and national level. However, I need your help to do it!
Attached you will find the guidelines for submitting your personal animal and veterinary experiences. Once this document is completed, you will be able to find out about the experiences other Pre-Vet students have completed all over the United States! You will also find out ways to get involved yourself! The individuals who send in the highest number of submissions will receive their very own APVMA water bottles.
I'd like to thank you all in advance for your participation!
