In October, two veterinary technology classes participated in a Career Trek to Mount Laurel Animal Hospital where they received a tour of the facility and gained valuable insight from industry professionals. Students were also introduced to specialty areas in the field of animal medicine such as working in cardiology, oncology, surgery, anesthesia, physical therapy, radiology, and emergency services. After the students had an opportunity to veterinary procedures, they wrapped up their day visiting and feeding the hospitals large farm animals.
Career Treks are intended to support the Guided Pathways framework by providing an opportunity for career exploration through an off-campus experience. By taking part in these activities, students are encouraged to remain on their academic pathway.
