The innovative Illinois veterinary curriculum continues to impress. On applicant interview day last month, the new curriculum was often cited by prospective students in an informal survey of their reasons for applying to Illinois. Soon the second class educated with the new integrated approach will complete their degrees, and we are beginning to gather data on the success of our graduates. Our current seniors did very well in the internship matching program, achieving an 89 percent success rate. Three of the 11 available ophthalmology residencies went to 2013 Illinois graduates. Overall, for residencies and internships in the 2014 matching program, Illinois ranked sixth among 34 participating colleges in successful matches for alumni. We are proud of all our graduates, and hope you assist us in spreading the news of the college’s leadership in veterinary education. Share your thoughts with me at dean@vetmed.illinois.edu.—Peter
