Final decisions

I think I've made my final choices for rotations! They are:
  • Companion Birds (parakeets, parrots, cockatiels, etc)
  • Emergency Medicine (self-explanatory)
  • Ophthalmology (eyeballs)
  • Dentistry (dogs can get root canals too)
  • Clinical Pathology (diagnosing diseases by looking at blood and tissues under the microscope)
  • Behavior (aggression, OCD, anxiety, inappropriate urination, you name it)
  • Cardiology (hearts)
  • Oncology (cancer)
And for externships:
  • Shelter Medicine at Golden Valley
  • Small Animal Ultrasound with a local practitioner
  • Exotic Pets in Indiana
  • Acupuncture at Colorado State University CVM
The next big decision I'll have to make is if/what I want to specialize in... At least that'll be easy, thanks to this handy-dandy decision tree!

Clinical Pathology is a good choice, everyone I've spoken too who has spent some time on it has said it was worthwhile.

That chart makes me smile. I've got to print it out and stick it up in the bar!
