Veterinarians are some of the most broadly trained professionals in the world. Just think: every day you’re solving problems, collaborating across disciplines and examining multiple species and systems. “Your training is uniquely hands-on and problem-oriented,” explains Kirsten Gilardi, director of the Karen C. Drayer Wildlife Health Center at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine.
