When the Royse family gathers and someone asks, “Is there a doctor in the house?” they need to specify what type of doctor. Robert Royse, M.D. is an Anesthesiologist and on May 5, 2007, he had the honor of hooding his son, Ryan Royse, as he graduated from the OSU College of Veterinary Medicine with a D.V.M. degree.
“I am so proud of Ryan and all of his accomplishments,” says Dr. Royse. “Ryan’s strengths are his determination to do what he sets out to do and his love of animals.”
Ryan knew at a young age that he wanted to be a veterinarian. He has enjoyed learning new concepts and applying them in class during his time at Oklahoma State University.
“After graduation, I am going to do an Equine Internship for the 2007-2008 year here at the OSU Center for Veterinary Health Sciences,” says Ryan. “My goal is to specialize in Equine Internal Medicine and Surgery.”
The Large Animal Clinic at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital treats approximately 3,190 cases a year. The young Dr. Royse will have an opportunity to fine tune his internal medicine and surgery skills with assistance from a host of board certified faculty.
“My wife and I are grateful to the Veterinary College for all of their time and caring for our son,” adds Dr. Royse. “He has made not only friends among his classmates but the professors and staff who work at the school will be life long friends, too, who really care about Ryan’s success.”
The Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine is one of 28 veterinary colleges located in the United States. For more information, visit http://www.cvhs.okstate.edu.
