In the program, participants will shadow in two rotations with our fourth-year vet students and experience veterinary medicine throughout our small animal hospital. Special labs in Pathology, Microbiology and Anatomy have been created specifically for our program and will be taught by our renowned faculty.
An entire day will be devoted to New Bolton Center, our large animal facility. Students will tour through the Marshak Dairy, Widener Hospital for Large Animals, and our 4DDI (4 Dimensional Digital Imaging) device. The program schedule is supplemented by several lectures such as Public Health, Toxicology, Working Dogs, and Parasitology also all presented by Penn Vet's faculty.
A student panel discussion will be held with our current vet students which will provide participants the opportunity to learn firsthand about our veterinary school through the student perspective.
Finally, participants will interact with members of the Admissions Office who are coordinating this program and individual meetings with an Admissions representative can be arranged during lunch.
If you have an interest in a career in veterinary medicine, then this program will provide you with an understanding of the challenges and rewards of this profession. You will have the opportunity to interact with other students who share your passion and begin forging future relationships with those who care about science and medicine for animals.
