Dr. Malathi Raghavan, clinical associate professor in the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine, is looking for DVM practitioners who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents to participate in an interview-based study about life as a veterinarian (in Indiana and other states). This study is designed to understand how (Indiana) veterinary practices can remain competitive and attractive to a veterinary workforce that is projected to grow in numbers and relevance nationally. The research team is interested in learning from veterinarians’ insights about veterinary opportunities, veterinarian needs and lifestyle amenities whether they work in Indiana or elsewhere. Each interview is expected to last approximately 20 to 30 minutes.

Any veterinary practitioner interested in participating or hearing more about the study (IRB protocol number IRB-2022-559), should contact Dr. Raghavan at 765-494-8547, or by e-mail to raghavm@purdue.edu, or the project research assistant Sydney Taylor, of the DVM Class of 2025, at taylo694@purdue.edu.  Thank you for considering this unique opportunity to help improve understanding about veterinary opportunities and veterinarian needs in the veterinary medical profession.
