D. Smith.

An overview of the most versatile of all professions: veterinary medicine. In response to societal changes, challenges and opportunities over 150 years, veterinarians have been propelled from caring for war horses, to food animals, to pets in the household and wildlife across the globe. And now, we are having an unprecedented opportunity to contribute directly to human health in ways that will be defined more clearly by 2020. This course describes the mega trends that have shaped the profession, but we will also take time to present some of the personal stories of individuals who created the diversity of the past and hope for the future.
