WCVM Dean Dr. Doug Freeman's op-ed outlines why the Alberta government's decision to abandon a 54-year partnership in veterinary education jeopardizes agriculture, public health and food safety in the West. Visit: http://keepvetmedstrong.ca
Albertans have had access to WCVM infrastructure, programs, research, expertise and equipment for five decades. Walking away from this successful partnership cuts off Alberta from these resources and weakens the province’s leadership role in veterinary medicine.
The WCVM Today Class of 2018 will soon finish their four-year Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) program with us! Over the next few weeks, we're highlighting where some of our new graduates will work after finishing their final clinical rotation.
Amber Backwell of Vancouver, B.C., will begin a small animal rotating internship at VCA Canada Western Veterinary Specialist & Emergency Centre in Calgary, Alta. An interesting fact about Amber: she's one of the few veterinary students in Canada who visited Sable Island to study its herd of feral horses. Amber lived on Sable Island during her time as a summer research student in 2015.
