WILLIAM R. PRITCHARD VETERINARY MEDICAL TEACHING HOSPITAL
From The Director’s Corner
Welcome to the July issue of VMTH View. We devote this
entire issue to the many and varied accomplishments
of our staff, faculty, residents and students during the past
year. Some—such as a new specialty board certiﬁcation or

collaboratively and showing the great teamwork that
epitomizes the VMTH.
Collectively, we have achieved a number of ﬁrsts this year.
We topped 45,000 patient visits for the ﬁrst time and set new
records for revenues, which allowed us to ﬁnish in the black

funding support for clinical teaching. Patient visits increased by
more than four percent in all thr WILLIAM R. PRITCHARD VETERINARY MEDICAL TEACHING
