One of the Coolest (and Often Unknown) Aspects of Vet Med Is:
The sheer amount of variety in this profession. For instance, being a veterinarian, you can be:
-> A general practitioner.
-> A veterinarian working for the CDC to combat bio-terrorism.
-> A researcher that works in a human hospital to make advances in human and animal health.
-> An oncologist.
-> A zoo and/or wildlife veterinarian.
-> A veterinary dentist.
-> An anatomical pathologist that performs necropsies (autopsies) and analyzes and interprets tissue samples.
-> An orthopedic surgeon.
-> A state veterinarian who monitors foreign animal diseases and promotes public health.
-> A veterinarian inspecting and keeping our meat and livestock products safe for human use and consumption
-> A poultry veterinarian.
-> A radiologist that interprets CT scans, MRIs, and radiographs (x-rays).
-> An equine surgeon.
-> An emergency and critical care specialist.
-> A cardiologist.
And the list goes on and on and on. The variety of this career continues to astound me, and I know wherever I end up, there will always be other doorway of opportunities available to me to advance my passion for vet med, and my career.
