Just love the pops of red of the new #shootsandleaves of this #angelwingbegonia
It’s such a resilient #plant; I’ve cut it back to #propagate so many times and it just keeps pushing out #newgrowth.
And this got me thinking about #vetschool. I feel like a lot of the time, we post a bleak reality of the program, but there are so many great things about the profession, apart from cuddling fuzzy babies. Yes, there are a lot of exams, and yes it’s a lot of work, but we’ve had so many opportunities for personal development, too. It’s not the end of the world if you don’t get 100% on an exam, because there are so many more to demonstrate your understanding, and we know that getting “good grades” on an exam can’t be equated with being a “good” vet.
Vet school teaches you how to be #resilient, and it also teaches you how to be thoughtful. Just today, we had a discussion on ethics and #standardofcare. We learned a lot from our colleagues and also had time to reflect on what our #ethics are.
We think that standard of care is a cut and dry topic, but in #vetmed you have to think creatively to do what’s best for your patient and client while being respectful of financial constraints.
Although it’s kind of terrifying to think that we’re nearly halfway to becoming #dogtors, it’s also helpful to remember why we want to be #veterinarians as we approach #finalsweek. Even though some exams might hurt, we’re going to make it through and learn a lot 😻
