Imposter syndrome in the veterinary profession

Description

Imposter syndrome is common among veterinarians, and I believe this can stem from the immense pressure to prove oneself to gain a spot in vet school. But what can we do about it? Talking to our peers a colleagues can be a simple and effective way to reduce the pressure on ourselves and each other, and gain perspective on unrealistic thoughts about our abilities. I want to talk about my experiences solo hiking in remote places and how I relate self doubts experienced in the wildness to self doubts that plague vets and vet students.

The AVA VetEd Talks are a series of talks where veterinarians present inspiring and innovative ideas that have brought a positive impact to the veterinary profession and demonstrate their passion.
