Practicing can be the best way to learn
Veterinary technician content is sponsored by Elanco for the month of October.
In an interview with dvm360 at the Fetch Coastal conference in Atlantic City, New Jersey, Mark Harris Jr, LVT, BS, shared his background in veterinary medicine and gave his quick tips for technicians taking clinically diagnostic radiographs. His main advice is to practice as much as you can and be patient with yourself as you are learning.
The following is a partial transcript of the video.
Mark Harris, Jr, LVT, BS: My name is Mark Harris Jr. I am a licensed tech and registered tech in Virginia and Maryland, currently practicing anesthesia out in Veterinary Surgical Centers in Metro DC.
Practice, practice, practice, be patient. You're never going to get the perfect shot the first time. Knowing your core foundations for appropriate technique and positioning are going to be your best friends. And just be patient and confident.
