Why did you choose to pursue this degree, and why did you choose Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine to pursue this degree?
Conservation medicine has always been a strong interest of mine since a young age. Participating in different wildlife science programs since childhood, and throughout undergrad has led me to pursue this degree.
What are your interests and/or experience relative to your program?
I chose Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine to pursue this degree, because I felt that this program has a unique way in teaching their students the importance of certain global health threats/ issues, why they’re happening, and possible solutions to fix these issues. Some experiences I have that could be relative to this program: performing surgical animal procedures, caring for sick farm animals, farm animal husbandry, and developing different agricultural health skills.
What are your career goals after completing the program?
My career goals after completing this program are to pursue a veterinary science career while being able to address different environmental health issues to the community, and to use the skills I’ve developed from the MCM program, within my future job and in the real world!
