“AO VET was essential in my career development as a veterinary orthopedic surgeon. It has helped me to become a better professional and gave me the opportunity to share this knowledge with other peers from all over the world. For the next years, I hope to be involved in the organization, and to inspire others the same way that I was inspired by my mentor at AO VET.”
