2009 CVM News: Dean Kotlikoff reminds Class of 2009 veterinarians that altitude depends on attitude
Office of Communications
This news item from the Cornell Chronicle is about: As Cornell's graduating class of doctors of veterinary medicine transition from books, classrooms and labs to professional practice, many will begin traditional postdoctoral training, and others have plans to pursue more unusual careers: One grad will join a dairy ambulatory practice, another will embark on a primate medicine residency and a third will conduct avian influenza research in Taiwan. Regardless of their paths, Michael Kotlikoff, the Austin O. Hooey Dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine, sees them as well-prepared for their careers ahead. As he cloaked the 81 graduates with ceremonial hoods May 23, a day before their formal recognition at Commencement, he told them: You survived the rigors and routines of the No. 1-ranked veterinary college in the nation. You leave Cornell with the finest training in veterinary medicine available anywhere in the world.
