Ever wonder what it is like to be educated in veterinary medicine?
Nat Geo WILD, in collaboration with Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM), premiered a new series, Vet School, on Sept. 19 at 10/9c on Nat Geo WILD.
The show highlights the experiences of three first-year students and four fourth-year students, and covers topics such as dental surgery, cardiology, and anesthesiology, with cats, dogs, horses, sheep, cows, and a miniature donkey.
As the first-year students wrestle sheep for a blood sample and the fourth-year students learn how to handle life-and-death surgeries and emergencies, the camera captures the pressures, rewards, and occasional sadness of life as an aspiring veterinarian.er
“We viewed this show as a fantastic opportunity to raise the profile of the veterinary profession and to help the public understand the rigorous education leading to a veterinary degree,” explained CVM Interim Dean Lorin D. Warnick, DVM, PhD.
