Summertime, and the learning is … everywhere!

At Illinois, fourth-year veterinary students are engaged in delivering clinical services throughout the teaching hospital and Chicago clinic.

Meanwhile, 21 students enrolled in earlier years of the DVM program have spent their summers working with faculty members throughout our college and across campus to conduct research and explore research career paths. This marks the 11th year of the Summer Research Training Program, which is funded through grants from the National Institutes of Health, Merial, and other sources.

Other Illinois students experienced veterinary medicine abroad through college-sponsored or independent programs that included spay-neuter clinics and academic rotations in Europe, Africa, and beyond.

I’m still learning more about the college every day, and meeting more alumni and friends. I look forward to meeting you, and wish you an enlightening summer. —Peter
