Brandywine Postbacc student participates in pre-vet program at Tufts University

Marisa Maglaty, an adult learner enrolled in the Penn State Brandywine Accelerated Undergraduate Postbaccalaureate Medical Sciences Certificate program, recently attended a weeklong program for career changers interested in exploring a career as a veterinarian. Held at the Tufts University Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, the Adventures in Veterinary Medicine (AVM) Program seeks to expose nontraditional students to the field of veterinary studies. Topics covered in the program included wildlife medicine, emergency medicine and international veterinary medicine. Students also had the opportunity to shadow vet students during their medicine and surgery rotations and participate in laboratories and hands-on activities with animals.
