Essay Questions

Please answer one of the following essay questions. Essays should be no more than 3 pages.

Essay 1

Studies have shown there are countless ways a veterinary practice can benefit from understanding human psychology. Key areas of psychology that directly link to the well-being of pets include proper education for human caregivers on pet health maintenance, managing pet illness, and end-of-life care. As a future veterinarian, how will you incorporate human psychology into your practice? What do you feel will be the biggest challenge when interacting with human caregivers?

Essay 2

A recent pattern in the veterinarian industry is the corporate buy-out of individual practices and recruitment to work in corporate veterinary hospitals. As a future veterinarian, what pros and cons do you see emerging in the quality of pet care if individual vet practices continue to get bought-out by veterinarian hospitals? Would you want to work in a corporate-owned animal hospital? Why or why not?
