Clinical Skills and Junior Surgery
Fall semester of my third year was one of the most fulfilling, as well as busy, semesters that I have had so far at Iowa State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. Following the infamously challenging second year and my summer as a veterinary scholar doing Ophthalmology research here at Iowa State, this past semester integrated all the components of my education that I’ve acquired, thus far. However, the pre-eminent experience this semester was embarking on the journey we fondly call junior surgery. Though many may think we just perform surgery, our program offers so much more.
