Derek is a Veterinary Student at the Ontario Veterinary College (OVC) University of Guelph and will graduate in 2019. During the busy spring and summer months RYAH employs university or college students, usually students pursuing a career in veterinary medicine, to lend an extra hand in the Treatment room helping both the Veterinarians and Technicians as needed. RYAH provides summer students the opportunity to get first hand experience and knowledge working at an animal hospital. RYAH benefits by having motivated and eager assistants helping our full time Veterinary Care team. Derek joined our team as an undergrad biomedical science student in 2012.
