Clincal year schedule.

I just received my clinical year schedule! I got both of the electives that I requested - Exotic and Wildlife Medicine & Surgery, and Laboratory Animal Medicine.

I have 12 weeks open to schedule externships. I already have three in mind, and I'm working on organizing letters of recommendation, transcripts, and letters of intent. One of them is with Dr. Goodwin in Texas, which I know I'm pretty much going to get from email contact with him. The other two I actually might be denied, as they're pretty fancy. One of them  is at a very prestigious school and only 14 people have completed it in 10 years. I don't wanna jinx myself by talking about it too much, but getting it would be a capital letters Big Deal.


  1. It cracks me up that hamsters are considered "exotic." I hope you get to learn about other animals too.

    1. Unfortunately, I have a *ton* of large animal stuff. Not that I don't like them, I just don't want to practice on them. And of course I also have a lot of good, old fashioned, dog and cat medicine.

  2. I wanted to make you aware of a great scholarship that is available to veterinary, undergraduate biology or pre-veterinary students. The award amount is $2,000 and the money is to be used at the students discretion. I would love to have you include it on your site and help us spread the word to all eligible students. For more details and how to apply go to dog fence diy annual scholarship.
    This is our first year and we hope to increase the number of scholarships we fund as our business profitability permits. We would love it if you could help us generate awareness by including a link on your website or websites. If you are not the right party to contact regarding this matter we would appreciate it if you could point us to the right person.
    Kind Regards
