Dr. Prudic was a resident when I was on faculty and also rented one of my rental houses! She is passionate about oncology and tells you all about this amazing specialty.

In the article, there is a graph indicating the percentage of veterinarians in general practice, specialty practice, and emergency practice. You can see that there is
When I visit hospitals and people ask how those hospitals are, the most resounding compliment anyone can give is, “Everyone is very nice!” What do I mean by that and how could you facilitate that feeling in your place of work/school? People in positive work environments are welcoming, friendly, and humble. Be Welcoming When there
I met Dr. Nickell when he interviewed for a job at an institution where I worked. Later, he and I worked at the same university and got along very well.
