Directing the MCM program is really fulfilling to me because I started my conservation medicine career at Tufts before we really even called it conservation medicine and before Tufts established the CCM. Part of the reason I chose to come to Tufts as a student was to be trained in this arena, and I think it’s critically important that we broaden conservation medicine training and thinking beyond veterinarians and any other boundaries. I especially love being able to interact in our small group setting with the very intelligent, passionate, and diverse group of students that we attract to the program every year.
