Welcome to 2020! It’s a time of new beginnings: a new school semester, new calendar, new foals and new goals. I’m always excited for the New Year. The students return for the spring semester, rested, stocked up on good home cooked meals and family time, and with some clinical experienced gained from precious time spent with their hometown mentors. The information the students labored to obtain all fall semester was granted new relevance through the shared experiences with mentors of their pre-vet school days. Without knowing it, you likely contributed to this transition, maybe in your clinic with your former kennel kid, maybe making field calls while talking with the kid who used to stock your truck. As an educator, I greatly appreciate your time, your effort, and the sharing of your experience with these students. You are providing a vital line of communication and real life perspective that those of us in the so-called ivory tower value, but can’t replicate. It takes a village to educate each veterinary student; that village extends well beyond the walls of the school.More...
