What do you think makes our program special or unique?

One of the things that I greatly enjoy about our curriculum is the emphasis on communication and creating a veterinarian that is not only a doctor but a well-rounded, resilient, and successful doctor.

To maintain school/life balance I:

Take time to do something for myself at least once a week, whether that be doing a fitness class at the UREC, planning out a meal to cook or going out with friends. I also schedule out group study time, that way I have motivation to get to a point in the material so that I can then share with others.

The hands-on experience here is:

Commendable; There are a multitude of opportunities for hands-on experience, both through the curriculum, and also outside. Many of the clubs host hands-on labs and other events, and there are options to practice in the Clinical Skills lab and get involved at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital or on a research project. Many of these are related to how much the student wants to seek out.
