For those who desire to use their scientific knowledge and skill to provide care to those members of the animal kingdom not including human beings, veterinary medicine can be both a challenging and rewarding career. However, to reach the level of skill and education that is required of veterinarians, is difficult and competitive at best. And, entrance into veterinary schools has become more competitive, just as entrance into medical schools and dental schools has become. By far one of the most important skills that anyone in the health professions needs to develop is the ability to find and assess information pertaining to their careers. While much of this is up to the individual student, the links provided here will lead to a wealth of information regarding veterinary medicine. We hope that they will be of benefit to you in your educational career. If you have any suggestions or requests about this area of the website, please feel free to contact us.
