Diverse career opportunities take DVM grad into One Health arena

Posted Feb 20, 18

One Health has always been of interest to OVC 2014 grad Emily Denstedt. In particular, wildlife and ecosystem health are particular passions. 

For Denstedt, bringing them together encompassed both veterinary medicine and public health.

She followed up her DVM training with a small animal rotating internship at OVC’s Health Sciences Centre and a mix of emergency and general practice in the London, Ontario, area before returning to OVC for the Master of Public Health (MPH) program in 2016.
