2018 CVM News: Cornell sets the bar for training veterinary techs in wildlife medicine

Other Titles

Abstract

This news item from the Cornell Chronicle is about: On the road to Ithaca one summer morning, Christina Parsnick pulled over to save an injured squirrel that had been hit by a car. The Niagara Falls native was on her way to Cornell’s Janet L. Swanson Wildlife Health Center (WHC), where the squirrel could be treated and where Parsnick herself was about to begin an intensive six-week training program for licensed veterinary technician (LVT) students. The Veterinary Technician Student Preceptorship in Wildlife Medicine is the first of its kind in the Northeast and gives veterinary technicians-in-training concentrated education in treating wild animals. That July morning was Parsnick’s first day, and when she got to the WHC, the clinicians immediately started treating the squirrel.
