Jean was born in October of freshman year, and Susan missed four days of class. Our family was always supported by the faculty and administrators at Purdue’s School of Veterinary Medicine. When Tom and Becky were added to our family after graduation, our careers as two veterinarians always fit well around family life and care of our children, and now our grandchildren. Purdue continued to be our “school family” throughout our career, and now into retirement. We were pleased to develop a scholarship for veterinary students who have children during their veterinary school years, and are now happy to help develop better facilities for the next generation of veterinarians. Read More About Our Pacesetters ...

#PurdueVetMed #boilermakers #boilerup #purdueuniversity #vetlife #thevetlife #dvm #vettechMy supervisors called me in for a I am Alex Bednar and I am a student in the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Program, Class of 2023.

I grew up in Mountain Lakes, NJ.  It’s one of those small towns where everyone knows everyone and everything about each other. 
My Dad is a doctor which really influenced me to pursuing a career in medicine. It took me a little longer to realize that this is the path I would be taking in life. In high school and into college I worked as an EMT and thought about medical school or even nursing.  But after spending about 4 years as an EMT on an ambulance, working in hospitals, and exploring possible careers within human medicine, nothing really felt “right.” That’s when I decided to start working with my pet’s veterinarian. I fell in love with veterinary medicine and grew to appreciate the work done by veterinarians and veterinary staff.

Veterinary schoolwork can be overwhelming but prioritizing the work and knowing your deadlines is the key. Also, the small class sizes and extensive interaction with instructors helps me learn better. The learning environment and community fostered by the @PUCVM faculty and students is friendly and conducive to learning.

I wish I had more time with my husband, but we try to eat dinner together every night and spend one night a week to relax and watch a movie or go out.  I consider my husband and my dog to be my necessities.

I’ve always seen myself practicing mixed animal medicine or swine medicine, but I am excited to see where life takes me.
