Michael Nappier (DSACS), Virginia Corrigan (former DSACS), and Shelby Borowski (DPHS) have published "Veterinary Medical Student Perceptions of Companion Animal Primary Care as a Career Choice Over an Academic Year" in Frontiers in Veterinary Science.

This study sets a baseline for students' perceptions of companion animal primary care as a career choice at one college of veterinary medicine. The study concluded that a majority of veterinary students have companion animal primary care as their preferred career choice and have a positive perception of it as a career choice. This positive perception increased over the course of an academic year, but did not differ significantly by year in school.
