Getting into veterinary school can be a challenge, but a successful application can pave the way to a broad career path. While most people associate veterinarians with clinical care for animals, veterinary medical professionals play increasingly diverse roles. They work in government, in the military and in private industry to help protect the nation’s food supply and control the spread of diseases. Veterinary researchers also work to advance animal, human and environmental health. On this show, UF’s pre-veterinary adviser, Alex Avelino, will discuss the application process and how aspiring veterinarians can best prepare themselves to embark on this professional path.
