As a veterinarian I will have the opportunity to affect changes in health in communities of animals and people with the skill sets I have learned and built upon throughout my graduate studies. I will be a veterinary epidemiologist specializing in sustainable community health utilizing the approach/philosophy/strategy of One Health - hey, now that's pretty amazing!
The main reason I chose UofG was because of my supervisors and project. I wanted to become an expert in oncolytic virotherapy to positively impact the lives of cancer patients. I also chose to complete my graduate studies at UofG because of the excellent facilities at the Ontario Veterinary College. The new Pathobiology building allows me to conduct my research with state of the art equipment such as our flow cytometer and animal facilities.
After graduation I plan on finding a job in the field of marketing research. UofG not only has equipped me with the tools to be successful in the field, but they have prepared me to be a cut above the rest of the applicants.
One of the things that attracted me to Guelph is how connected the sports community is in this beautiful city. If you play any sport, you can very easily find a team or a place where you can practice and/or compete.
Graduate studies at the University of Guelph is unique because of the vibrant and friendly community environment, the access to outstanding resources and training, and the many opportunities on campus to develop important career and life skills.
Graduate student life at U of G is different than I expected, in a good way! Even though I'm just a part time MSc student, I am on campus often-enough to be able to make close friendships and I feel like the relationship with my advisory committee is not a student-professor relationship. It feels like more of a working professional relationship which I am thoroughly enjoying!
