Attention UF veterinary students! If you're interested in learning HQHVSN to help save the world (or at least the dogs and cats that are in it!), then MSMP can help.
Dr. Katherine Polak, a trainee in Maddie's Shelter Medicine Residency, is spending four weeks in Asia learning about community animal issues and assisting with the emergency sheltering of dogs displaced during the recent devastating floods in Bangkok, Thailand. She's keeping us posted on her adventures from across the globe.
Shelter Medicine externs will spend most of their time working with a veterinarian in the shelter. Spay/Neuter externs, students will spend most of their time developing their surgical proficiency.
