Isu Veterinary Ambassadors, Dianne Hellwig Jan 1992

Isu Veterinary Ambassadors, Dianne Hellwig

Iowa State University Veterinarian

For most people, initial exposure to the veterinary profession involves the routine care of their pets, working the family livestock, or perhaps a hectic jaunt across James Herriot's Yorkshire Dales. While there aren't many aspiring veterinary students who honestly expect modern veterinary practice to operate like the one at Skeldale House, most are not aware of the countless opportunities that veterinary medicine can provide. The impetus for developing an ambassador group at Iowa State's College of Veterinary Medicine was the desire to reach out to the community, thus fostering a greater understanding of the veterinary profession, as ...

Personal Lifestyles, Sarah Lutz

Iowa State University Veterinarian

Running a marathon could be likened to surviving a semester at vet school... 13 miles of downhill fun, 9 miles of sweat, and 4 miles of hell. Sophomore year of vet school was the time I decided to run the marathon that I had always assumed I would run someday. It didn't seem that my future was going to become any more accommodating to the required training schedule. My intentions were to run just one marathon so that I would know that I could do it.

During the 1992 summer season, ten lowa.State veterinary students were given the opportunity to experience research first hand.

First and second year students chose a veterinary faculty mentor whose area of research matched their interests. Working with their mentor, they then designed a project, wrote a proposal, and upon approval, carried out the project during the summer.

Enjoyable, Self-paced, Interactive, Challenging, Instructive, Goal-Oriented, Time-Efficient.

What perceptions do the above terms convey to the reader? These terms describe interactive multimedia instruction. This instructional methodology brings together sound, motion, still images, animation, graphics, and text into lessons which are delivered upon request by computer to the student. The delivery of multimedia education to the student has been delayed due to the cost of computer peripherals and software necessary for providing sound and motion of sufficient quality. However, certain aspects of multimedia are readily available today and can be provided to the veterinary student.

Avmanews Irs Clarifies Tax Requirements For Veterinarians

Iowa State University Veterinarian

The AVMA and the Internal Revenue Service reached an agreement that will save many practitioners thousands of dollars in back taxes, hours of aggravation and IRS investigation. An IRS ruling issued in mid-August overturns an earlier ruling which would have required veterinary corporations not filing as personal service corporations between 1987 and 1991 to pay additional taxes, penalties, interest charges, and accountant fees.

Attitudes Toward Athletics: A Comparison Of Five Groups , Rosemary Clark Kellenberger

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The intent of this study is to assess and compare the attitudes of five groups directly and indirectly related to Iowa State University, in regard to their attitudes toward athletics. The five groups are: Alumni, Faculty, Parents of Student-Athletes, Students and Student-Athletes. Each group consisted of 300 individuals. No existing questionnaire was considered appropriate for this study; therefore, one was constructed. Using the techniques of grounded theory, six different aspects of attitudes were identified from the literature on attitude theory and athletics: Belief, "Basking-In-Reflected-Glory," Benefit to Females, Benefit to Males, Competition, Facts, and Importance. These clusters were used in constructing ...

Distance Education: A Cost Analysis , Judy Irene Book Jones

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Today, the technical capabilities exist for all schools to provide effective distance education opportunities. While the technologies do offer solutions to enable school districts to improve their curricula and learning experiences, they also create new problems. They are expensive and complicated. There are a growing number of efforts to make telecommunication infrastructure and information resources available; however, access to telecommunication resources varies considerably in different locations (U. S. Congress, 1989). There can be large differences in estimated costs and actual expenditures (Feasley, 1982). There are price and quality variances (Eicher, 1987). It is difficult to analyze and compare costs because ...
