"This program was an excellent orientation to a very exciting and rewarding career with USDA. The program provided me with the basics required to function as a public services veterinarian. The training consisted of an orientation class, a significant diseases class, and introduction to epidemiology; and to complete the training we conducted a field exercise in Alabama . Each respective class was very important in the development of my career with APHIS. This program also provides an invaluable network of colleagues that I rely on heavily today. Even though it was an orientation training program, this program paved the way for more advanced training and additional career development."
