Perspectives in Veterinary Medicine

Welcome to Perspectives in Veterinary Medicine! This Veritas blog shares perspectives about the many facets of the veterinary profession, shows how the past and future of veterinary medicine are aligned, and explores hot topics and current issues.

Respected authors include leaders in the profession, practicing veterinarians, and those who have written Veritas courses. Featured author Dr. Donald F. Smith explores a variety of topics such as the leadership role of women within the profession, the composition of academic institutions and their curriculum, the re-emergence of the concept of “one health” - the way in which animals enhance the human condition - and so much more!
