Canadian Veterinary Student Symposium Welcomes Yukon Vet

On January 13th, 2018, Dr. Michelle Oakley (pictured left), star of Nat Geo Wild’s reality show Dr. Oakley: Yukon Vet, addressed Canadian veterinary students with her keynote lecture, Life of a Yukon Vet; Will Film for Food, at the annual Students of the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (SCVMA) Symposium. The event was hosted this year by Dr. Oakley’s alma mater, the Atlantic Veterinary College (AVC) at the University of Prince Edward Island. “The 2018 SCVMA Symposium theme ‘Mink, Mice, and Moose: The Diverse Field of Veterinary Medicine’ highlights the multiple paths students can follow in their veterinary career, and emphasizes Dr. Oakley’s lecture on how she went from being an AVC student to the only all-species veterinarian for Canada’s vast Yukon territory and a National Geographic reality star,” says Karie Bryenton (pictured right), SCVMA Committee representative, 2018 SCVMA symposium chair and AVC Class of 2020.
