"I was interested in emergency, but also nervous that I wasn't going to know enough, even though I went to school and I learned the book part of it. But the actual application is sometimes challenging, so I liked that the EmERge program offers a lot of good mentorship from veterinarians who've been doing it for a while." Thomas McManus, DVM EmERge Graduate and Emergency Clinician at BluePearl Pet Hospital in Town Center (Virginia Beach), VA
"I would say this to anybody who is interested in emergency medicine: EmERge is a great place to start, a great way to progress and a great way to build a network of support, both with your fellow EmERge program participants, but also the instructors, the hospital mentors and more." Jonathan Durmin, DVM EmERge Graduate and Emergency Clinician at BluePearl Pet Hospital in Skokie, IL
"I'm most excited about using the skills that we've learned. I feel really confident now that we've been able to do chest tubes, abdominal taps and things like that multiple times. Being able to use those skills and feel really confident doing them and also being able to lead my technicians through things like that makes me more prepared in emergency situations." Adeline Wadel, DVM EmERge Graduate and Emergency Clinician at BluePearl Pet Hospital in Stone Oak, TX
