Lincoln Memorial thanks Ethos Veterinary Health
The chain’s Mass Vet hospital helped train 17 students on clinical rotations.
Ethos Veterinary Health and the company’s Massachusetts Veterinary Referral Hospital have been honored for hosting 17 Lincoln Memorial University veterinary students during their clinical rotations.
The university’s Distinguished Clinical Affiliate Award was presented to Mass Vet staff veterinarian Beth Eisenberg, DVM, DACVECC, at a commencement ceremony that saw 102 students receive their degrees.
The 17 students served four-week rotations at Mass Vet in Woburn, Massachusetts. Lincoln Memorial’s distributive model of veterinary education sends fourth-year students to participating veterinary practices.
“Dr. Eisenberg has shown a personal keen interest in the growth and learning of our students, and always welcomes our students to her practice,” said Jason W. Johnson, DVM, MS, DACT, dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine. “She and her Mass Vet associates have done a wonderful job challenging, educating and preparing each student on their clinical journey and for life post-graduation.”
Ethos Veterinary Health operates more than 20 hospitals nationwide after the recent additions of WVRC in Wisconsin and Pet Emergency & Specialty Center of Marin in San Rafael, California.
At commencement, Lincoln Memorial also:
- Presented an honorary DVM degree to the family of Kaitlyn Jo DeVries, who died in a 2016 car crash.
- Presented the Distinguished Service Medal to the wife of the late Edwin Robertson, DVM, “for his pioneering work in embryo transfer in cattle and his service to LMU and the surrounding community,” the university reported. Dr. Robertson was the American Association of Bovine Practitioners’ 1993 Practitioner of the Year.
