Careers In Science

Veterinarian

Life Science

I believe it is Life Science because it focuses on health of pets animals.


Education Path

Pre-Veterinarian Medicine helps people get ready for veterinarian school. The students that go to Pre-Veterinarian Medicine often get lab experience with animals in the lab. They learn about lots off stuff in this college like, calculus, animal physiology, biology, zoology vertebrate and statistics. They also learn about organic chemistry, microbiology, animal physiology, chemistry, and physics

Most people that got into Pre-Veterinarian Medicine school take physics, Pre-Calculus advanced chemistry, biology, and Pre-Veterinarian Medicine 101. Otherwise the science teachers tell you the big courses you should take.



Then there is Veterinary Residency Programs for Veterinarian Medicine. It takes one to five years to do and it prepares you for certification as practitioners of recognized specialties for the profession.



Finally there is Veterinary and Graduate Veterinary Programs for Veterinary Medicine. It prepares everyone for the professional practice of veterinary medicine. It focuses on advanced biomedical and clinical studies. If want to go to the optional path to bachelor's degree it is a two year associate of arts or science degree programs. It has studies in fine arts, humanities, mathematics, natural science, and social science.

Training School & College (University Of Wisconsin-Green Bay)

The school I picked was University Of Wisconsin-Green Bay for Pre-Veterinarian Medicine. The reason I picked was because it is relatively close to where I live and it has three science and mathematics classes. As you can see it is a University and it is a public college. It is in the suburban area. It is a two year college, and the average class sizes are twenty to forty-nine.


The school for Veterinary Residency Programs that I picked is University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I picked because it is the closest to home. It is in a suburban area. It is a public school and a University. it is a two year college and the ratio student to facility is seventeen to one.


For Veterinary and Graduate Veterinary Programs I picked the same school University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I picked because it is the closest to home. It is in a suburban area. It is a public school and a University. it is a two year college and the ratio student to facility is seventeen to one.

Academics

The average GPA for University Of Wisconsin-Green Bay is 3.25, 18 to 25 is the average ACT, and the average SAT score is 960 to 1099.

The average GPA for University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is 3.75, the ACT average is is 24 to 29, and the SAT average is 650 to 750.


About The Job

The smaller animals veterinarians work with are cats and dogs the bigger ones are cows and horses. Some other veterinarians research or teach in the animal industry. They help family's by saving their pets, telling them if they are sick, and making sure the pet food is pet friendly and pet healthy.


What Factors Affect Employment For This Job

They work forty-five to eighty hours a week unless they work alone then they work twenty-four seven. When they get called they just fit what they can in their vehicle. They work in offices and where ever they get called for work. Wisconsin has eight job openings while national it is five hundred plus but, the eight in Wisconsin are really good seven of them you actually help pets.


Salary

The salaries are very similar but Wisconsin is down by a bit. The Entry in Wisconsin is 48,790 and 23.46 per hour. The National entry is 49,910 and per hour is 24. Wisconsin's median salary is 73,030, the per hour is 35.11. The National median is 82,040, and the per hour for national is 39.44. Finally the experienced for Wisconsin is 125,850 and per hour 60.50. The National experienced is 145,230 and per hour 69.82


Employer (Middleton Veterinarian Hospital)

Middleton Veterinarian Hospital is the employer and the location is 2705 Parmenter Street in Middleton, Wisconsin.


Summary

I could see myself being a veterinarian but, only if my first four dream jobs didn't work out. The pros for me would be I get to work with pets. The cons are Middleton, Wisconsin is somewhere around 151 miles away from my mom's side of the family and I always spend at least three days a month hanging out with them. Another con is if the the has to be put down I'm going to have to do that.
