“I wanted to start out by saying thank you. You have helped me this last year with the Belize internship, in Belize (carting us around and dealing with us), while also helping Dr. Isabelle with my letters of recommendation for veterinary school. Without you, I would have never been able to travel to Belize, learn an enormous amount, and apply for vet school. So, thank you, I truly appreciate all that you have done for me and recommend your program and assistance to anyone that is interested in animals and travel”.
Price Dickson was one of 11 University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine students who took BWRC’s Wildlife Medicine and Conservation course in January 2014. She was interviewed by Dr. Elliot Garber for his well-known blog “the uncommon veterinarian”. In her interview, Price gives a thoughtful and thorough account of her experience with BWRC.
BWRC has wildly inspired dozens of prospective vet students, vet students, and veterinarians. Students taking BWRC’s Wildlife Medicine and Conservation course can receive elective credit through their home veterinary institution, or take it for credit through BWRC’s partnership with NMSU.
