Nowadays, not only people need medical and health care, but so do animals. Unfortunately, there is a definite shortage of professional veterinarians in the veterinary world. Nevertheless, there is simultaneously an increase of high demand for qualified veterinarians. Luckily, veterinary colleges were inspired to offer special veterinary programs providing service of animal healthcare.
The newspaper named Cache Valley Daily gives information on the veterinary situation in the state of Utah and reports that only one veterinarian serves every 6,500 animals at present in the state. So, if population increase grows with the same tendency and speed as it does now, it is expected that the state would require minimum ten more professional veterinarians in this field per year.
Experiencing such a growing need in veterinarians in Utah, veterinary colleges of the state have recently informed the Mass Media that they are going to provide their students a doctorate degree in the field of veterinary medicine starting with the summer of the year 2012. There is a covenant between school in the state of Utah and veterinary program in Washington State which have built a strong partnership. This agreement is a fundamental guarantee of veterinary institutions in the state of Utah to save more than $13 million while opening the special programs providing the students with the doctorate degree.
According to the statement of the local official from the college's animal, dairy and sciences department informed to the news journalist the new veterinary program is going to provide twenty Utah residents and ten non-residents with the veterinary training each year. Unfortunately, at present the veterinary college may suggest space enough for training of only six students from the state of Utah in the veterinary area.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that professional veterinarians are required to obtain the veterinary doctorate degree received in one of four-year schools. Admission requirements necessary for getting enrolled into the program in the veterinary field differ from school to school, according to the statement Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), nevertheless, the greater number of the accepted students have already obtained a bachelor's degree in the veterinary field.
As the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) informs, the admission into a veterinary college is highly competitive because of a little number of veterinary colleges with the state accreditation. In fact, no new veterinary college was opened during the last thirty years. At the same time, the number of students willing to obtain veterinary education (early childhood education certificate) has lately extremely grown. Nevertheless, the rate of admission has considerably grown in the last several years. Besides, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) states that approximately one of three students willing to study was accepted by the veterinary colleges in the year of 2007.
According to the Minnesota Daily, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) expects a significant growth of the need for food supply veterinarians, who deal with such animals as horses, cows, pigs chickens, and some other domestic animals. So, it is expected that this demand will grow from twelve to thirteen percent during the next six years. The major responsibilities of food supply veterinarians include making up proper menus for animals as well as treating them if some gastrointestinal problems appear. Unfortunately, today's situation with the veterinarians leaves much to be desired. Thus, one of Minnesota counties with the population of more than 550,000 food supply animals, has only one practicing professional veterinarian.
According to the statement of the speaker of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) a significant number of students who have graduated from veterinary colleges are have an average debt of more than $130,000. One of the local journalists informs that a college in the North Star State has suggested its students a program with the name VetFAST. This veterinary program gives students an excellent opportunity to accomplish their pre-veterinary credits in three years, thus, transforming these credits into the doctor's degree program a year earlier. As you can see, this is an accelerated pre-veterinary program in the field. This accelerated pre-veterinary program intends to aims to diminish financial expenses for a great number of students.
It would be important to mention that pre-veterinary courses usually focus on such sciences as physics, animal nutrition, zoology, chemistry, biology, as the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) informs.
