Mission Statement Template


To be hired by an AAHA-accredited feline-focused hospital in Virginia, Texas or Mississippi within four months of graduation from veterinary school in 2009 and receive a compensation/benefits package that allows me to pay off my student loans within 10 years. This will allow me to focus on feline medicine, my passion, in a hospital recognized for excellent patient care and client service and to be compensated fairly for my work. To make this happen, I will volunteer for additional casework with feline patients at the university's teaching hospital and work with my advisor and mentors to identify additional areas of study and to obtain letters of recommendation.


To secure a position as an in-practice neurosurgery specialist at Exemplary Animal Hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina by 2014 so I can participate in patient trials conducted through the hospital's 10-year joint venture with Company X. To make this happen, I will obtain a neurosurgery internship at either Hampshire Veterinary Clinic in Seattle or West Bridge Pet Hospital in Atlanta by 2009 because Exemplary routinely hires interns from hospitals to work in its practice, and I will complete at least 20 hours of CE in small animal anatomy and applied surgical anatomy by 2013.
