We all dream to be at our passion job after college and we make great planning’s for it from college days ? Dun we? With great student in junior college with added interest in circular activities, I always thought my dream job will be something I always cherished.
My neighbourhood would be filled with street cats, dogs wandering around the gate to feed on daily meal provided them. Not only from college, but my school days also went nourishing the generation of them.
My decision was made in college to do “Veterinary Medicine” for higher education. The phase of keeping wounded turtles, freed pigeons, freed parrots, etc needed to go to next level is what I always idealized of. How many of you know what “Veterinary Medicine” is and what is the relation of animals with medicine?
Veterinary medicine is the branch of science that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease, disorder and injury of animals. Veterinary care is usually led by a veterinary physician (usually called a vet, veterinary surgeon or veterinarian). This role is the equivalent of a doctor in human medicine and usually involves post-graduate study and qualification.
Also over the last few years the desire to understand the animal world has increased dramatically not only in international countries but also India. The research and treatments towards animals has taken another step in India as well.
Out of top 10 universities in world for Veterinary Medicine, two of them are located in UK only. UK higher education courses are generally shorter than in other countries too. So being petit on this thought, I decided to go for UK as destination for veterinary medicine which saves my money on annual fees as well and the years from other countries as well. My keen interest was University of Glasgow. The 2013/14 QS World University Rankings also found that employers worldwide consider UK graduates among the most ’employable’ – from a global survey of 27,000 graduate employers, five UK universities were ranked in the top 10. Now this explains that choosing a university in UK will definitely would confirm to a better future as well along with my passion of job.
The University of Glasgow’s School of Veterinary Medicine is pre-eminent in teaching, research and clinical provision, and attracts students, researchers and clinicians from around the world. The veterinary medicine is as old as 150 years in this university. Along with veterinary medicine, UK also has many option of Animal Behaviour where I could specialise in animal psychology , Zoology , Animal handling and care, Wildlife ecology,etc. But medicine is where I wanted to give life to the animals to live more independent life and not being abandoned.
The year 2012 marked the 150th anniversary of the University of Glasgow’s School of Veterinary Medicine, which was founded in 1862 by James McCall. Along with theory they also have 5 years of elaborate teaching on medicine and animal treatment.
It maintains a multidisciplinary research culture that is responsive to advances in technology and changing priorities in the international arena. They have Weipers Equine Hospital school where they treat various animals with ailments and diseases to give them better future ahead than being abandon.
Recently they operated thoroughbred horse recently underwent surgery for tendonitis at the same hospital school in the University of Glasgow. This procedure involved cutting the ligament to help lengthen the tendon – and minimise the chances of lameness setting in.
The horse was called “Karma” which was successfully operated and took few steps immediately after the operation.
The teaching style in UK is something which also would suit my style as you get to interact with many students of various cultures, experience from them would also help in my session in college and not to forget the after college hours fun as well.
