Goal of Shadowing: Veterinary medicine is a rewarding profession. But it does require compassion and a lot of work. Not everyone is cut out for this profession. A small amount of time behind the scenes in a veterinary clinic when you are trying to make a decision about your career choice can make a big difference. Although we cannot place all students, we can provide some with an experience that will help make an informed decision.
