  1. I absolutely want to transfer to the wildlife side of the veterinary field but have no idea what step to take next. I am currently an RVT in a cat and dog veterinary hospital and am ready to take the next step toward the wildlife career I’ve dreamed about!

  2. Will there be a written transcript of the webinar available if I am unable to watch the live webinar?

    • No written transcript is provided. However, the webinars are recorded and posted to our website, usually within a few days. A link to the recording is sent to all who register, and all recordings are available at

  3. I have a few friends that are wildlife vets and they say it is some of the most rewarding work that they’ve ever done. It seems like veterinarians are always deeply motivated

  4. In her presentation, Dr. Driscoll will talk about how to find job in wildlife veterinary medicine. She will provide her thoughts on the benefit of an advanced degree and discuss any other experience that would be helpful in landing a job in this competitive and rewarding career path. I am the moderator for the webinar and these are great suggestions for the presentation, which I have passed on to Dr. Driscoll.

  5. I have also had trouble finding a career working with wildlife or in wildlife disease research. I’ve been searching for wildlife health related opportunities in Arizona for nearly 2 years since graduating from vet school, but no luck. I would like to stay in Arizona, but I’m afraid that may not be possible. I’ve also expressed interest in going back to school to earn a Master’s degree in wildlife conservation, wildlife diseases, and/or public health but the research professors either have no funding or stop responding to me. Dead ends here as well…

  6. How can I become the wildlife DVM in northern NV. State basically employs trappers? I have run into nothing but dead ends
