What are qualified submissions?
Within the platform, you’ll have up to five minutes to record what made you fall in love with veterinary medicine. What could be done to make you love it even more. Or if being in love doesn’t describe your situation, what made you fall out of love? What could be done to make it better — to rekindle your passion and make you stay?

There’s no need to be super specific, like listing names, just specific enough to evoke change. Change that will keep you loving what you do — or make you love it again.

The platform will prompt you as you prepare to record. You can re-record as many times as you wish until you feel that your plea is passionate enough to attract attention. Just remember to speak from your heart.
