For most people, initial exposure to the veterinary profession involves the routine care of their pets, working the family livestock, or perhaps a hectic jaunt across James Herriot's Yorkshire Dales. While there aren't many aspiring veterinary students who honestly expect modern veterinary practice to operate like the one at Skeldale House, most are not aware of the countless opportunities that veterinary medicine can provide. The impetus for developing an ambassador group at Iowa State's College of Veterinary Medicine was the desire to reach out to the community, thus fostering a greater understanding of the veterinary profession, as well as encouraging highly motivated students to consider this rewarding career.
