Goodbye, Dear Friend. Virginia Ironside. In the Bag! Margaret Allen. The Goodness of Dogs. We worked hard as students and took our education seriously, but we had fun every day.
Our first day as freshmen, we were greeted by upper classmen who instructed us to turn in our thermometers to be autoclaved. At least half the class complied. Another time, David Newell rode my horse into the anatomy lab during class, a feat I doubt could occur today. To this day, we have not figured out who put glue in the locks of the office doors of the pathology faculty after what was deemed to be a highly unreasonable exam. Our memories are special and lasting. CH: There are so many to choose from!
I remember that on my first day of classes, Dr. Clark in pharmacology as he filled 3 chalkboards an hour with notes; I remember being challenged academically more than I had ever been challenged in my life and I remember the sense of community that developed as a result of all of us. And, as I finally received my diploma, I remember the bone-crushing handshake of Dean J.
My days at Auburn were character-defining for me, and some of the best memories of my life. CJ: When I was a veterinary student, and continuing today, the faculty in the first two years of the veterinary curriculum were outstanding. They facilitated the transition from undergraduate to veterinary education and constantly pointed out clinical correlates to the basic sciences.
Paul Rumph in gross anatomy was an excellent example of this. His lecture on the pleura is as vivid to me today as it was 36 years ago. The thought of a miniature person entering the pleural cavity with a spray can and applying paint to the ribs parietal pleura and pericardium visceral pleura , etc. Ted Reynolds was another uniquely talented faculty member in this regard. His description of the layers of the equine hoof and the illustration of the various layers of the hoof by tracing a nail entering the sole and extending to the third phalanx are hardwired in my brain.
Charlie Hendrix and his enthusiastic animations of parasite life cycles were something to behold. As the saying goes, their methods are often imitated but never duplicated. JJ: Well, I have always been resourceful. When I arrived for my residency at Auburn, we had, literally, just moved into the new big building; and our offices were located upstairs. It just so happened my classmate, Dr. Brian Whitlock, an amazing human being, asked if I wanted to share an office with him. Brian was our class salutatorian I was farther down the list , and I know how osmosis works; so I agreed, and prepared my brain for an infusion of knowledge.
The problem was, there was no desk for me. So, I strolled through the upstairs hallways and there were many empty offices, with desks, so I got someone who will remain unnamed, an amazing human being friend of mine, to help me relocate a brand new desk down to my new shared office. It was nice, fit super well. Life was good. A couple of weeks later we had our first Large Animal Section meeting and during the business part of it, Dr. Some of those dang.
My brain processed a thousand scenarios very quickly. I glanced at my amazing friend, and he was stone-faced, yet a little bulgy-eyed. Carson, I stole your desk. Was there a particular instance or event that led you into veterinary higher education? EG: Upon graduation, my classmate and husband, Dr. At that time, Mississippi State University was in the process of developing a new college of veterinary medicine. Their dean, Dr. Jim Miller, had been hired, but it was so early in the process that legislative approval had not yet been achieved.
He offered us both positions as founding faculty members. The family discussions were intense about whether to leave this successful practice we had built or to go. In the end, we concluded that if we passed up this opportunity, it would likely never come again, and if we went to Mississippi State and we found we preferred practice, we could be back in practice within weeks—so we accepted the offer.
It was one of those decisions in life that changed the course of history in the most fulfilling way. CH: I had no aspirations initially to be an academic clinician or administrator. I think I was blessed to have people along my career journey who believed in me and pushed me until I believed in myself. I am at a point in my career where I want to make a difference to the profession that has been so good to me.
As a dean, I feel that I can do that. They seemed dedicated to their jobs and enjoyed the company of their colleagues. They were held in high esteem by students, alumni, and the general public. By observing them, I wanted to follow in their footsteps to promote the veterinary profession through education. Bob Carson calls and tells me he thinks I should do a theriogenology residency. I told him I was not interested. It was that residency time, while reunited with excellent educators, that further solidified my current career path.
The fuller story here is that perhaps I was always destined to be in some sort of education, as my mother is a professor at Troy University, a lifelong educator, and always promoted higher learning in our household. If so, who and what characteristics? EG: All I ever wanted to be was the best equine veterinarian I could be and most of my effort was towards that goal, except that I also had a long-term attraction to leadership training of any kind. I read leadership books.
There were many along the way who have influenced me and shaped me as a leader, both through formal and informal means. Certainly, I was motivated by Paul Neal, an equine surgeon from the University of Liverpool in England, who had come to Mississippi State as a visiting professor. He was an individual who was well-published at the time and enjoyed an international reputation as an equine surgeon, yet he was enormously humble and kind.
He also had a delightful sense of humor, that subtle British humor often missed by some. His positive attitude never changed despite the challenges around him. He became a dear friend and treasured colleague with whom I stayed in contact until his death. I would be remiss if I did not also call out Dr. Harold Garner. He was a brilliant mind, yet so unassuming.
He and Dr. Jim Coffman were early investigators of equine laminitis, changing the way the profession understood this devastating disease. In his laboratory, his collaborative research on human cardiovascular disease was sustained over 10 consecutive years of NIH funding. I was fortunate to enjoy his mentorship as I pursued equine research.
He and his wife, Patsy, remain cherished friends. CH: My late husband, Dr. Jeff Tyler, had many qualities that I have tried to emulate, including work ethic, integrity, and a soft spot for underdogs. There were so many faculty who were just genuinely good people like Dwight Wolfe, Joe Spano, Bill Brawner, Steve Swaim, and countless others who modeled professionalism for me in ways that have an impact on me to this day.
CJ: Dr. Lauren Wolfe, because of his sense of humor coupled with a sharp focus on academic excellence and advancement of science through research. Timothy R. Boosinger, because of his collegiality, warmth, and commitment to the advancement of the College of Veterinary Medicine and Auburn University. John Thomas Vaughan, because of his intellect and engagement as a citizen, historian, and academic administrator; his humility; and his ability to connect personally with anyone.
So, I would say, in its purist form, the answer to this question is all of them; but there are a few that stand out. During school, my top mentors were Drs. Christine Navarre and Gatz Riddell. Each spent huge amounts of time with me—and my fellow students—both on the pre-clinical and clinical floor and really challenged us to think on our feet. As my educational career advanced, my top mentors were Drs. Bob Carson and Dan Givens, my residency supervisor and research advisor, respectively. There is way more beyond that though. Carson was a very open, honest, humble, hardworking and non-judgmental man; and I seek to emulate these characteristics on a daily basis.
Dan Givens taught me how to take hard subjects, hard situations, and effectively communicate that to my learner s. Simply stated, if our students are not prepared for the exponentially changing world they will enter, they are unlikely to be successful. Helping ensure graduate achievement is a substantial responsibility for colleges of veterinary medicine today and into the future.
CH: We will face many challenges as we find the correct balance between private and corporate practice, struggle with work-life balance, and face the unique financial aspects of our profession. With a DVM degree in hand, there are far more career doors opened for us than we ever imagined back when I graduated from Auburn.
At the same time, students need to be grounded in the basic principles of science, clinical medicine, ethics, service, and good will. How did your Auburn DVM education prepare you? EG: Auburn prepared me well to practice veterinary medicine. Even then, we were career ready. CH: I learned as much about myself at Auburn than I did about veterinary medical practice. I was taught humility, professionalism, teamwork, respect, and what it means to be part of the Auburn family. The actual education was an experience that provided a platform for personal growth and lifelong friends.
EG: This question could fill an entire book, so I will offer only a few examples. Coupled with artificial intelligence and machine learning, the veterinarian of the future will have expanded knowledge and skills. This digital revolution will result in new career opportunities for veterinarians in new practice models, entrepreneurship, biomedical engineering, technological advances, big data, and much more. In addition, I believe the world is beginning to value the education and skills of veterinarians more than ever before, and this upward trajectory will persist.
Increased numbers of veterinarians will be involved in feeding the world, as the global population moves towards 10 billion people. Veterinarians will help shape the policy of healthcare in general and will be included on teams to mitigate global pandemics. They will advance human and animal health. Veterinarians will be more attuned to the importance of wellness.
CH: There are many more career choices available and a greater emphasis on One Health and how human, animal, and environmental health intersect. There are better diagnostic tools and treatment options and our clients are more knowledgeable of these options due to internet access to medical information. I sincerely hope that the art of a thorough physical exam is not lost with these new tools and that we, as a profession continue to be characterized as perceptive, resourceful, innovative, and compassionate clinicians.
CJ: The opportunities to excel in veterinary medicine, biomedical science, and related fields are plentiful if a graduate is well trained, engaged, innovative, and eager to work hard. I believe the opportunities are more diverse and exciting now than when I graduated 32 years ago. JJ: First off, the sheer diversity of jobs that are available. Not only will there be more diverse jobs, but also the speed at which new graduates can pivot and change their area of veterinary interest is super easy.
Big data, cloud computing, smart phones, wearable technologies, AI and reliable access to information make the client interface, disease diagnosis, treatment and monitoring a totally different experience. CH: I believe telemedicine will change how the public accesses veterinary care and precision medicine will change the breadth of treatment options and will facilitate disease cures that were once impossible. CJ: Changes in the way data are collected, analyzed, and interpreted will lead to development of new technology and new systems of practice. EG: We, as a profession, are certainly paying attention to private practice ownership, including that related to the consolidation of veterinary practices.
Veterinary colleges are providing much more training in financial literacy and other business knowledge and skills than ever before, including demonstration of the financial advantages of practice ownership. With that said, we are also pleased at the breadth of exciting opportunities for graduates today, such as flexible schedules, part-time practice, and remote work locations. This flexibility allows veterinarians to find the career models that function well for them at any point in their work life.
We need to do a better job providing students and early-career veterinarians with business skills and the appropriate mentorship needed to facilitate business ownership and transition of private practices from one veterinarian to another. These models are well suited for the professional needs of some graduates. Private practice will continue to provide opportunities for professional and personal success by being highly responsive to local markets, service-driven, and engaged professionally with other private practices in aspects of purchasing power, capitalization of major equipment, and human resource management.
Economic opportunity will continue to drive change, and our graduates must be ready to work in a constantly evolving environment. JJ: This is a complicated question. As a profession, probably not in a cohesive fashion. And when I say profession, I mean all of us. That narrows the pool. Second, historically speaking, while in veterinary school, academia has not taught a great deal of finance—personal, business, and practice ownership. It is still totally do-able now, but young graduates must be intentional about budgeting, and some practice owners are aiding in intentional transitional plans.
EG: There is no simple solution, yet collectively we can make a difference. Employers, veterinary colleges, organized veterinary medicine, and the students themselves all play a role. Veterinarians hiring new graduates can offer higher salaries. That is an accomplishable figure.
Some practices are offering creative loan repayment benefits. Other local, state, and national loan repayment and loan forgiveness plans exist, such as those associated with public service. While veterinary colleges rarely control their tuition and fees, because tuition and fees are usually regulated by the university or the state, they can offer training in business and finances throughout the curriculum in a progressive manner, such as financial literacy early in the curriculum and practice management, practice ownership, negotiations, etc.
Veterinary colleges are devoting much time to raising money for student scholarships through philanthropy. The students can increase their financial literacy in a number of ways and can minimize the money they borrow. Again, this is a complicated, multifaceted issue that must be addressed in an ongoing manner by all. Sources of support should include individuals, corporations, and industry cooperatives.
CH: There is not one single idea that best addresses this issue. It needs to be a combination of training our students to be fiscally responsible, striving to increase student scholarships and loan repayment forgiveness programs, and placing value on our education and work as evidenced by what we charge for our services. Dean Jason Johnson. CJ: Student debt is a symptom of a complex problem.
A multifaceted, balanced approach is needed. Here are eight important components:. JJ: You cannot have a conversation about the challenges in veterinary higher education today without the topic of student debt coming up. Veterinary medicine is not alone; in fact, student loans are the 1 non-housing debt in the USA. Some have questioned the sustainability of our traditional higher educational models. However, I believe the institution of higher education holds great value—for the learner, for the states or regions it serves, and for society as a whole.
The approach to the issue requires activation of the whole ecosystem that surrounds the learner, from undergraduate to new employee and beyond. There is no silver bullet, and all of the very smart people that have been meeting at summits and meetings around this issue tell us just that. EG: One thing that scares me is that we in the veterinary profession will focus on the challenges rather than the opportunities.
Digital medicine will occur; in fact, it is progressing at a staggering rate. Veterinarians must lead or they will be led. From a global health standpoint, I believe we all worry about feeding the growing world population and about the real, pending threat of a global pandemic.
Veterinarians have an essential role to play in both. CH: The need for better coordination across the various aspects of One Health. Whether we are facing a threat to food security, a highly contagious zoonotic. We must engage in thoughtful dialogue, evidence-based approaches to problems, and a clear plan for workforce development. CJ: I am always concerned about maintaining appropriate responses and deterrents to the potential introduction of foreign animal diseases and the threat of human-induced calamities e.
JJ: Global food safety and security and what I like to call the six Ts, which I will identify in a minute. First, the global population is projected to be adding 1 million people per week for the next 40 years; we need to produce more food over the next 40 years than during the last years. It does not take long for one to muster a long list of how each of these intersect the pivotal role the veterinarian plays in society.
