What does Ohio State mean for future leaders in veterinary medicine?

Joe Esch, DVM, doesn’t waste a minute in any day, and but for Ohio State, the world of veterinary medicine would not be welcoming one of its rising stars into its profession. A 2012 graduate from Ohio State’s College of Veterinary Medicine, Esch has a career goal to serve in a small animal general practice. He has been recognized multiple times for his academic excellence and outstanding leadership and earned a Board of Trustees Student Recognition Award. In 2011, Esch became the first Ohio State student selected as president of the Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association. “I get passionate when I believe I can help make things better,” Esch says. “Ohio State has trained me very well. I have learned from some of the best veterinary faculty in the world in classrooms and labs that are at the forefront of the profession. Ohio State offers the total package.”
