To be a successful Veterinarian, you must have great people skills, and many Pre-Vet mentoring programs do not focus on the variety of client interactions that happen daily in a Veterinary practice.
Most Veterinary mentoring programs focus on direct animal contact and vet shadowing, which students love, but the crucial soft skills are often minimized.
Another roadblock to gaining mentorship is the lack of free time that Veterinarians often have. We Veterinarians love to share knowledge by mentoring, but often do not have free time to devote to a mentee. Our Ride-Along Program eliminates these issues by allowing the Future Vet mentee to join virtually with a Veterinarian who can continue their work, but now has a mentee joining their clinic online for an amazing experience!
It is a common myth among unmentored students that spoken communication with people is not required for the Veterinary profession. This myth is totally debunked through our Ride-Along program. Students will observe firsthand how actual Veterinarians communicate with pet parents who might be anxious, nervous, and scared about their pet’s diagnosis.
