Navigating your education can be daunting and overwhelming. One way to add clarity to the process is to gather information from those who have already traveled their paths and familiarized themselves with the terrain.
That's why the Students for One Health hosted a panel at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in early 2014. The goal was to give current veterinary students a chance to pick the brains of three faculty members and two PhD students, all of whom are working in the fields of One Health and wildlife. Their advice can be found in the videos below.
1. One Health for wildlife vets
2. Choosing the right path
3. MPVM vs. PhD
4. Effective emails & resumes
5. The political realm
6. Marketing yourself
