NCUIRE Gives Undergrads Opportunity to Conduct Research
Dimas’ participation in NCUIRE has led to an internship this summer with the Wild at Heart wildlife rescue service in Cave Creek, Arizona, the next step toward what she hopes is a career as a wildlife veterinarian.
“That’s been a huge benefit that I’ve personally gotten from this project,” Dimas said. “I never would have connected with Wild at Heart had I not been on this NCUIRE team. It’s given me a really great head start on my career. Getting into vet school is so competitive that if you don’t have hands-on experience, you’re probably not even going to be considered.”
