Planning for a Career in Wildlife

On May 20, 2020, we hosted a panel discussion for current Cornell DVM students interested in wildlife health-related careers. Panel participants included recent Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) alumni who shared their experiences as students, where their veterinary training has led them, and how their careers have developed. The panel was moderated by Dr. Elizabeth Bunting.
