"My students are the cream of the crop, of course," Karl Jandrey, the Associate Dean of Admissions and Student Programs at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine said, "but also the faculty, staff and colleagues I get to work with on a daily basis here are the movers and shakers. They're the leaders, the book writers, the discoverers of new information that lead to improvements in animal health, human health and environmental ecology."
