Preceptorship Program Takes Flight

As the student services coordinator at the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine, Angela Tennison, DVM '01, works with veterinarians to develop preceptorship programs for veterinary students. A transplanted Southerner who dislikes winter weather, Tennison recently found her own horizons expanded when her search for opportunities for students to broaden their hands-on learning experiences took her to Alaska.

"It's truly one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen, and I have traveled fairly extensively," she said.

Tennison's journey into America's last frontier began when she became aware that the American Bald Eagle Foundation offers preceptorships to veterinary students and internships to undergraduates. She contacted Dan Hart, OD, a retired optometrist who is the raptor curator for the foundation, and began working with him to develop a program that would give MU's veterinary students the chance to spend time studying bald eagles and other birds and working an avian medical specialist in Alaska.
