On May 20, 2020, the Cornell Wildlife Health Lab hosted a panel discussion to benefit DVM students interested in career options in the field of wildlife health. The panel included former students, some who worked and trained with the Cornell Wildlife Health Lab during their time at Cornell. We are proud of all the students that have been part of our team and we will continue to support them in any way we can. We were fortunate to have this opportunity to reverse roles and learn from them about where their training has taken them and how their careers have developed.
