    Unhappy I feel Unfullfilled

    -I am a vet student who is currently in his 4th year of study (For reference I am 2 years away from graduation) and recently as I am getting into studying pathology deseases and surgical techniques, I sort of feel less and less of a vet. Don't get me wrong, this feeling was always here (specially in the first years where all we studied was anatomy and physiology and pre-clinical stuff) but now it only seems to get bigger and bigger, and all I feel I am doing is validating my exams and endlessly studying things that I am incapable of assimilating, basically I feel like I'm only studying for exams and that I'm not becoming a vet anymore, it's frustrating and disencouraging.

    Any tips or advises please ?

    Hi there, i know the feeling. Try to do dome placements , hopefully somewhere bice, where you can see thevread day to day work, and hopefully be involved too. Don't freak out just yet. I studied in Spain, where we have a similar system (very theoretical, not as practical) and I have been working in orher countries were last year students spend the last two years mostly in a practical set up, and I can see how is a bit more encouraging. Don't give up!

    I concur. Help about in a clinic or even a few different clinics as well as try to get some fieldwork. I did both in my sparerime while studying y4-6. Very important to learn how to manage the clients/ owners and the more different vets you see the more you can chose what would suite you best. When I later applied for jobs the extra experience mattered the most.
