WSVMA Mentoring Program
The WSVMA Mentoring Program is geared towards third year veterinary students and new grads. The WSVMA Mentoring Program’s goal is to ease the transition from veterinary college to the workforce by establishing mentorships with practicing veterinarians. These relationships can assist veterinary students with planning senior clinical year rotations, job search skills (resume preparation, interview tips, search strategies), and exploring career options in the veterinary field. After graduation, mentors will provide guidance for professional and personal challenges during the first year of practice (time management, client communication skills, stress relief, etc.).
