|Zseltvay First to Earn Research Scholars Designation|
(Stillwater, Okla., June 25, 2013) – Katie Zseltvay, DVM, is the first Oklahoma State University Center for Veterinary Health Sciences graduate to earn the newly-created Veterinary Medical Research Scholars transcript designation. This honor is awarded to veterinary medical students who have completed a research project—usually during a summer break—presented the research results at a state, regional or national meeting, and published the work in a peer-reviewed journal.
"Oklahoma State University prepared me for so many different aspects of a career in veterinary medicine including my current internship position at Cornell," says Zseltvay. "Everyone at OSU who has supported me over the past four years and the research that I completed at NCSU helped me grow into the doctor that I have always wanted to be."
Dr. Zseltvay earned her DVM degree from Oklahoma State University in May 2013 and is now fulfilling a small animal internship at the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine in Ithaca, N.Y. She is the daughter of Kenneth and Patricia Zseltvay of Jamestown, N.C., and a member of the Nu Chapter of Phi Zeta, the honor society of veterinary medicine.
