New Vet School Reality Show

VetSchool

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.
