1 VETERINARY MEDICINE NEWS YOU CAN USE: 1. Our guest instructor will be Lois B. Simmons, Director, School of Health Professions Admissions Office at CCBC Essex. This is the nearest college where you can go to study to become a veterinary technologist or technician. 2. In order to complete this badge, you will have to go on a field trip to visit a veterinary facility or spend time talking with a veterinarian who works in one of the specialty fields listed in requirement 2. The Boston Street Veterinary Hospital in Fells Point will welcome five Scouts for a tour on Wednesday, December 28, at 4 p.m. (Most schools are out that week.) You can sign up for this field trip during Merit Badge College. First come, first served. If you cannot go on that trip, you can make an appointment on your own to visit with your family s veterinarian or a vet clinic near your home. GET STARTED TODAY! Before the Merit Badge College, do this: At school, at the library or at home on your computer, find a reference book called the Occupational Outlook Handbook. It is a fantastic guide to careers produced by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The guide is free and available entirely online at Use it to look up Veterinarian (this will help you fulfill requirement 3). Then use it to look up Veterinary Technologist or Technician (this will help you fulfill requirement 4). If you can, print out those pages. There are some really cool YouTube videos about the veterinary professions. The American Veterinary Medical Association has produced a YouTube video series called Career Profiles in Veterinary Medicine. There s a video about small animal medicine, and another about bovines, and another about aquatic animal medicine. Check them out! Watching these can help you complete requirements 1 and 2.
