In this month of quarantine and social distancing, the power of human connection is clear. We want to see each other and talk to each other. We want to share laughter and knowledge and support.
At the NC State College of Veterinary Medicine and NC State Veterinary Hospital, we have been uplifted by the encouraging words of our community as we continue to see emergency patients, interact with owners and remain dedicated to educating our students.
We thrive on being a part of this wonderful community and want to continue sharing everything we do at the CVM and veterinary hospital with that community through some new learning resources.
We’re sharing some behind-the-scenes looks at our college and the fantastic work of our faculty, staff and students. Through these educational videos, you’ll be able to meet CVM leaders and clinicians and learn about how our Turtle Rescue Team operates, discover all that goes into taking care of the animals at our Teaching Animal Unit and so much more.
We also see this as an educational resource for budding veterinarians and especially for teachers and parents looking for new resources to share with their students and children as part of distance learning.
“At the NC State College of Veterinary Medicine, we are proud of how we link research, clinical service and education in ways that benefit human and animal health,” said Laura Nelson, CVM associate dean and director of academic affairs. “As part of the proud legacy of land grant colleges and universities, we are also all about sharing what we think and do with North Carolina and the world.
“We hope that these offerings help inspire future veterinarians and showcase how we work and learn at our college.”
We plan to update with new videos and lessons throughout the coming weeks. If you have ideas for lessons or anything you’ve been curious to see, email us at CVMCommunications@ncsu.edu.
When the world starts to feel small, it’s time to open it back up again.
