Vet school unleashed: dissecting the DVM

As we gear up for #VetMedUnited next week we thought we'd get the conversation started with a little help from Seth Williams a veterinary student at the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine. Seth created the podcast "Vet School Unleashed: Dissecting the DVM" to provide a candid commentary on topics, issues, and insight on life in veterinary school.  Each episode features a special guest veterinarian, student, or expert to lend their advice and insight on the topic at hand.

Click the link below to listen to a discussion about wellness within the veterinary community, the aspects of veterinary medicine that makes us prone to shortcomings in our wellness, and what we can do about it with Corey Regnerus, a New Zealand veterinary student and co-founder of "Vet Confessionals".





On April 4th the SAVMA Wellness Committee invites veterinary students to unite in solidarity with the #VetMedUnited movement. Tuesday, April 4th will act as a day of remembrance of veterinarians and veterinary students we have lost to suicide. It is also a chance to raise awareness about mental health in our profession and take the time to celebrate what contributes to our personal wellness. We encourage SAVMA Chapters to join in vigil and establish campus events on this date to stand as #VetMedUnited.

One way to make the most of this event is to focus on positive factors contributing to personal wellness on the days leading up to April 4th, followed by a moment of silence, candlelight vigil, or other remembrance ceremony on April 4th. It is also an opportunity to promote resources such as counseling and/or suicide prevention hotlines.

The SAVMA Wellness Committee will also be kicking off a Wellness Spotlight in The Vet Gazette next month to showcase wellness events from veterinary medicine campuses nationally and around the globe. The goal of the Wellness Spotlight is to highlight examples of how campuses are contributing to the personal wellness of their students. Other campuses can then replicate those events or build ideas from them. 

One of every 6 veterinarians will consider suicide at some point during his/her career. To combat this statistic, let us stand together as #VetMedUnited. During your campus event, don’t forget to upload photos to social media using the hashtag #VetMedUnited. Spread the Word, Stand United, Help Each Other, #VetMedUnited.

Cutest Pet Holiday Contest Winners

Winter may be on its way out but these cuties keep us in the joyful, holiday spirit year round. 

Kelly Lessard, from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine, started fostering "Enzo" after someone found him as a stray. About Enzo, Kelly says, "Our former rabbit had just passed away of cancer, and we decided to adopt him permanently. He's a five-month-old mini Rex and is an absolute joy. This was his first Christmas, and spent it running around the tree, playing in the wrapping paper, and stealing everyone's toys."


We literally can't get enough of these curious bulldog puppies playing with Christmas boxes and bows sent to us by Taylor Owens from Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine.
