The Karen C. Drayer Wildlife Health Center partners with the Sacramento Zoo to provide veterinary services and training opportunities for Zoological Medicine residents like Katie Delk, featured in the video above. Zoological Medicine residents spend their second and third years of the residency at the San Diego Zoo, San Diego Safari Park and SeaWorld.
The Zoological Medicine Service and Residency Program was developed by Dr. Murray E. Fowler in 1974. It was the first zoological medicine residency in the world. The program is now run by Dr. Ray Wack.
