Animal Planet “Life at Vet U” features fourth-year Penn Vet students (from left to right) Max Emanuel, Melanie Lang, Lindsay Gallagher, Clint Kuban, Rebecca Bernstein, and Morgan Taylor. The students graduated in May.
For the first three years of veterinary school, students spend the equivalent of a full-time job—or more—in the classroom and lab, absorbing the core scientific principles that will guide their practice of animal medicine. Of course, that’s in addition to the extra time studying, volunteering, and otherwise bolstering their skills outside of class.
The fourth year of vet school is different. Students don white coats and begin clinical rotations. For the first time, with the assistance of their professors, they are caring for patients. It is this period of immersion, insecurity, and exhilaration that is the subject of “Life at Vet U,” a new Animal Planet docu-series set to premiere on Saturday, Oct. 1, at 10 p.m. And the setting for the show is the School of Veterinary Medicine.
The series follows six fourth-year Penn Vet students: Clint Kuban, Max Emanuel, Lindsay Gallagher, Morgan Taylor, Rebecca Bernstein, and Melanie Lang, as well as the faculty members who guide them in their clinical rotations. The series will feature six one-hour episodes as well as six webisodes and six enhanced episodes that will also air on the network.
