Choosing a career is more complicated than deciding what to have for dinner or where to go on vacation. Whether you’ve just begun thinking about veterinary medicine as a career or it’s been a lifelong dream, you probably have some questions about how to get there and what you may have to give up along the way.
This post is part of our common questions about becoming a veterinarian and their answers section of our blog. Check out more under the veterinary questions and answers category. We also encourage you to add your own voice and send us your questions. Chances are, if you’re wondering about something, someone else is too.
Hi, I’m starting community college next fall and I just wanted to know what classes do you guys recommend for me to take that will benefit me and my plan in becoming a veterinarian. My plan is to graduate high school this year and go to DVC then transfer to UC Davis for their veterinary medicine program. I want to be prepared as I can be!
We are very happy to announce the winners of its first annual Solutions for the Profession Competition. Three creative students were awarded cash prizes to help with educational expenses.
The competition offers veterinary students an opportunity to share an innovative solution to a problem facing the profession. Over one hundred entries were submitted from around the world. Veterinary student debt and mental health were the most common problems addressed.
We are excited to announce the launch of our Student Debt Center, a mobile-friendly comprehensive resource for all things related to student debt, in particular veterinary student debt.
With veterinarians leaving school having a debt load routinely exceeding two times their salary, and far surpassing the “healthy” debt-to-income ratio of most professions, this is a critical issue impacting the veterinary profession. Veterinary student debt-related stress is taking a toll on individuals and the profession – a toll measured in physical, emotional and financial stress. The VIN Foundation is answering the call to this crisis with the Student Debt Center.
We are excited to announce the first annual VIN Foundation Solutions for the Profession Competition. This competition is open to students currently enrolled in veterinary school.
Three entrants will win scholarships to help support tuition and education related expenses:
• First place: $3,000
• Second place: $1,500
• Third place: $1,000
