When I left the reservation at White Mountain, AZ last year at the end of my spring break, all I kept repeating to anyone who innocently asked how my break was included, "It was incredible. I am never spending Spring Break another way."
Other than the obvious benefits of sleeping on a concrete high school band-room floor with 30 new friends with variable degrees of new flea infestations and waking up at 5am to try to caffeinate before struggling to remember how the non-rebreather anesthesia set-up works, RAVS affords the ultimate experience in field veterinary work with the highest quality of medicine. I was astounded by the well-oiled machine that is RAVS - students from all experience levels could learn and challenge themselves, working with a variety of incredible vets, techs and staff with different day-jobs, but the same mentality - teaching the next crop of veterinarians to treat the animal and the owner with the highest level of medical care and respect.
I can not begin to put into words what I learned about veterinary medicine, client communication and even myself on my last RAVS trip. What I can say is that I am beyond thrilled to be going back, because I want to contribute to this incredible organization, and continue to learn and aid the communities that it reaches.
