"Attending MVCTC solidified my future educational and career plans. My lab allowed me large amounts of hands on experience, and the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills I still use to this day! Veterinary Medicine can be a challenging field, but CTC taught me resilience, leadership, and how to push myself to both become and do better. Without CTC I would not be where I am at today, as it gave me a leg up in the veterinary field, and paved the way for many experiences I would not have had the opportunity to do otherwise. I adored my time at MVCTC, and have even created life-long friendships from my time there. MVCTC has allowed me to continually be successful in reaching my goals. I will graduate in 2025 with my DVM, and I could not be more excited!"
