Mentor Program

The purpose of the Faculty-Student Mentor Program is to provide guidance to students in obtaining educational opportunities over the summer breaks and during fourth-year externships, choosing elective experiences in the veterinary curriculum, and in finding rewarding career alternatives after graduation. Additionally, the faculty mentor can help students develop good study skills, and provide academic assistance if needed. This program also will allow an informal mechanism for students to interact with faculty, and to provide feedback regarding the veterinary medical curriculum.
