PVM Hosts International Visitors
The Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine is pleased to welcome a senior veterinary student from the University of Glasgow, Megan Helgeson. Megan will participate in an Emergency and Critical Care rotation with Clinical Assistant Professor Paula Johnson in Block 17. She is the first student to visit as part of Purdue Veterinary Medicine’s new exchange with the University of Glasgow. Prior to enrolling at Glasgow, Megan earned her Bachelor of Science degree in animal science at California Polytechnic State University, where she made the Dean’s Honor List and received the American Society of Animal Science Scholastic Achievement Award. She enjoys traveling, hiking and playing sports, and helped lead the Glasgow Veterinary School’s women’s rugby team to victory during the past two years.
Megan joined four other international visitors at our College. Katrin Nabholz and Florence Schmid, both from Switzerland, are rotating in medicine and oncology, under the supervision of Dr. Larry Adams, professor of small animal internal medicine and co-section head of small animal medicine. They will be here through May 12. Jennifer Kan, from Singapore, participated in a practitioner’s sabbatical with Dr. Hock Gan Heng in Radiology and was here until April 20. Alisa Herbst is non-veterinary student from Germany, who is studying equine management with Dr. Laurent Couëtil, professor of large animal medicine and director of the Equine Sports Medicine Center. She will be staying through August 18.
Another international visitor, Anne Classen, who is originally from Germany, just left to return to her studies in Vienna. She was here from March 3 through April 11, and rotated through neurology, ophthalmology and medicine.
