The R.I.S.E. program was created by PetVet Care Centers to offer guidance and support through mentorship to recent graduates like yourself as you take the next step in your veterinary career.
R.I.S.E. is an acronym that stands for ‘Rotational Immersion & Skill-building Experience’.
R.I.S.E. is designed to help new DVM grads like you transition from academia to clinical practice.
You will be paired with an experienced mentor and will move through the program with a nationwide cohort, providing an added layer of peer mentorship and the foundation for a professional network.
