Proposed Project

Veterinary Student Survey—New—National Center for Infectious Diseases (NCID)—Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

The proposed survey asks veterinary students to describe their knowledge of various public health programs, their career interests post-graduation and how they arrived at such a decision, and their perception of the role veterinarians play in public health. The proposed study consists of an introductory letter and a self-administered, electronic questionnaire e-mailed to veterinary students in the United States. The Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) has agreed to collaborate on the survey and will provide a list of veterinary students from their membership mailing list. The study objectives are to describe current knowledge and attitudes of veterinary students regarding veterinary public health programs, and to determine their interests in a potential career in veterinary public health. There is no cost to respondents other than their time. Start Printed Page 25574
