10 Professionals and Vet Students Earn Graduate Certificates

We’re excited to announce the newest recipients of the Maddie’s Online Graduate Certificate in Shelter Medicine!

This spring, 10 professional veterinarians and veterinary students received a graduate certification in shelter medicine through our online education program. These talented students and professionals now possess the skills and knowledge they need to make a difference in the lives of shelter pets.

Shelter medicine is on track to become the next recognized veterinary specialty, and Maddie’s Shelter Medicine Program is proud to offer current and future veterinarians the training they need to help homeless pets in shelters across the globe.

The Maddie’s Online Graduate Certificate in Shelter Medicine provides the opportunity for students to engage in graduate-level coursework intended to prepare them for all aspects of a shelter medicine practice.

Through the power of distance learning, professionals and students can enhance their veterinary skills from anywhere in the world. One certificate recipient said, “Through the UF Maddie”s® Certificate in Shelter Medicine Program, I was able to supplement my current curriculum and foster my interest in shelter medicine. The three courses often overlapped with what I was learning at school and provided great depth and references.”
