More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Lorrie K Hale-Mitchell, DVM (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: Last published 12 years ago, this book is now updated to include the many and varied practice settings that veterinarians and veterinary students may enter. It describes the different options, noting job details and pros and cons.
Purpose: The author provides a solid starting point for anyone looking for a new career direction, or to enhance a current career. She is very clear about pursuing a direction that excites one, rather than changing direction because of dissatisfaction with a current job.
Audience: The book is written for veterinarians, veterinary students, preveterinary students, and high-school students interested in veterinary medicine. Unless the latter two audiences have good mentorship, they could find this book overwhelming — a point the author alludes to in her introduction. It is most valuable to veterinarians looking for a career change or enhancement and veterinary students unsure of what path to pursue upon graduation. Dr. Smith has been a consultant for many years, and speaks internationally on the subject of creating successful careers and lives in veterinary medicine.
Features: A wide array of veterinary career choices are covered, from the obvious (i.e., private practice) to the not so obvious (i.e., forensic veterinarian). The book is clearly written and organized. Each profession has an expected daily work list, pros and cons, and sample job announcement. The table of contents makes it easy to look up a specific topic. The resource list at the end of each chapter is a great source for websites and phone numbers to help readers get started in making that career change.
Assessment: I have not seen any other similar books, so I was pleased to see this updated version. After being in private practice for 15 years, I am contemplating a career change. This book will help tremendously. I appreciate the author's introduction to the book and how to use it. It is a quick read and it's easy to reference possible job opportunities and what to expect. Dr. Smith has done an excellent job updating this book to include new professional opportunities that have arisen since the previous edition, including the One World One Health Initiative and Homeland Security jobs.
