The veterinary technicians and assistants resource center (vtarc) is pleased to announce that it is expanding and will provide issues of its print publication, vtarc Companion, free of charge to members of the animal healthcare team. The team has also restructured the website’s subscription process, providing free access at www.vtarc.com. All subscribers now have unlimited access to www.vtarc.com with thousands of Internet links organized by category, sponsored corporate educational links, and digital copies of all issues of the cutting-edge publication, vtarc Companion.
The expansion includes a slight change to the vtarc Companion’s 2011 production schedule with the first issue to be distributed to approximately 15,000 members of the animal health care team in April 2011.
vtarc Companion’s expanded target audience will be veterinary technicians and assistants in all kinds of workplace environments as well as students. The magazine will continue to feature scientific articles from nationally recognized experts, our short Corners feature that provide a snap shot of a particular topic with Internet references for additional information. Corners include topics on new products, featured case studies, personal growth, finance, practice tips, and much more!
The expanded circulation of the vtarc Companion and open access to the website supports our team’s philosophy that every animal deserves to be cared for by individuals who are as educated and prepared as possible for their role on the animal health care team. Because learning needs and styles are unique, each person who visits www.vtarc.com or reads the vtarc Companion, will take away what they need to improve their knowledge base and skills. Ultimately, it is the animals we care for who benefit!
Staff members from the NDSU Veterinary Technology Program won two prestigious national awards at the July meeting of the Association of Veterinary Technician Educators (AVTE). Teresa Sonsthagen was named the winner of the AVTE/Elsevier Award for Teaching Excellence. Teresa was recognized for her “above and beyond” approach to educating veterinary technicians.
In her nomination letter, coworker Stacey Ostby wrote, “Teresa is a true Veterinary Technologist. It is hard to put into words the many achievements she has accomplished and the amount of energy she has put into this career.”
The NDSU Veterinary Technology program also won the AVTE/Iams-Eukanuba Award for Excellence in Team Teaching. This award recognizes educators who have demonstrated exceptional strength in working collaboratively to generate creative learning opportunities for their students.
