"When this opportunity came up and I saw how great the communication was, I knew it was a good way to go. I feel like once I started talking with Thrive, it hasn’t really stopped. I’m trying to absorb as much as I can, trying to learn how to be the doctor, be the leader, so it’s nice to get the opportunity to be up close and learn."

“At the Student Ambassador retreat, I learned about how the company tries to support their employees in every way that they can. It makes me hopeful for the future knowing that Thrive is actively trying to make veterinary medicine a better place."

"ER Academy interns should be able to walk into any ER clinic in the country and feel confident enough to run the floor and handle any cases that may walk through the door. We also are very focused on the skills of emotional intelligence, mindfulness, and communication that can help prevent burnout and create more well-rounded clinicians."
