Cornell veterinary students star in new Nat Geo Wild show


Vet School premieres Sept. 19 on the network that's home to The Incredible Dr. Pol and other veterinary shows.

Cornell University's College of Veterinary Medicine will be featured in a new television show premiering Sept. 19 on Nat Geo Wild.

Vet School joins the list of veterinary shows on the network that includes The Incredible Dr. Pol, Aloha Vet, Dr. K's Exotic Animal ER and Dr. Oakley, Yukon Vet. The new show stars seven first- and fourth-year veterinary students and records their trials and tribulations throughout the school year, according to a university release. The show documents Hannah Brodlie, Cristina Bustamante and Dan Cimino as they adjust to the demands of veterinary school, and it follows Sam Dicker, Singen Elliott, Aziza Glass, and Aria Hill as they prepare to launch their careers.

Aziza Glass, a fourth-year veterinary student, learns how to care for a donkey.

The episodes cover the spectrum of the veterinary college experience. An ER evening shift, wrestling sheep to get a blood sample, a rambunctious donkey and a dog with congestive heart failure are among the highlights.

“We viewed this show as a fantastic opportunity to raise the profile of the veterinary profession and to help the public understand the rigorous education leading to a veterinary degree,” says Lorin Warnick, DVM, PhD, interim dean of the veterinary college.

Vet School is on 10 p.m Eastern/9 p.m. Central.
