That Blue Piece of Paper

During the first hour of radiology class last Friday the class of 2013 received an e-mail that our 4th year clinical rotation schedules were in our mailboxes. Lets just say it was hard to concentrate for the last hour of class! I can't believe fourth year is going to start so soon, I feel like I just started vet school.

After three years of classroom-based learning you transition into 11 months of clinical rotations in the Texas A&M small and large animal hospitals and one month of externships at a veterinary setting of your choice. While there are several required rotations, you can chose to track small animal, large animal, mixed animal or an alternative track, such as exotics, research or a specific aspect of the cattle industry (dairy, feedlot, stocker, etc.)

I am tracking small animal medicine so my rotations consist of small animal cardiology, canine and feline internal medicine, oncology, neurology, dermatology, dentistry, just to name a few. I am so excited to be able to work with clients and patients everyday! I know I am going to be really busy (and tired) but I can't wait.
