National Television Opportunity for Alumni
This exciting opportunity comes to us from Cineflix, the international, award-winning production company behind such hit shows as Property Brothers and American Pickers (www.cineflixproductions.com). They are seeking a veterinarian for a groundbreaking, new television series that will chronicle the day-to-day challenges and triumphs of a veterinarian working with local residents and their animals in a remote, rural town in northern Maine that presently has no access to veterinary care. The veterinarian selected for this memorable experience will be featured on national television and will receive financial compensation. What's more, you can truly create impactful change for an appreciative community!
Cineflix is currently in the casting stage and would love to arrange phone interviews with interested veterinarians. If you are interested in applying for the series, please email email@example.com. And, of course, do keep us posted if you are selected for this opportunity!
Alumni Volunteer Opportunity - Supervise students through first spays & neuters
This volunteer opportunity is for graduates who are interested in helping to shape the way future veterinarians spay and neuter small animals. Volunteer veterinarians will come to the Philadelphia animal shelter on a Thursday and/or Friday and supervise students through some of their first spays and neuters on dogs. A nurse and first-year rotating intern from the University of Pennsylvania will be present to help the volunteer veterinarian supervise the student surgeries and take charge of all administrative and logistical work. Volunteers will be asked to be present at the Animal Care and Control Team headquarters at 111 West Hunting Park Avenue from 9 am through 3 pm on the days they are scheduled to volunteer. If interested, please contact Jeffrey Barnet at firstname.lastname@example.org.
