1. $837K scholarships - was that only the class of 2024 or the whole college?
Hope Winograd
01:38:27
2.Did sm animal case numbers include the Miami Dade partnership?
Patricia Wlasuk
01:39:00
Thanks, Hope. Will double check with the Dean.
Hope Winograd
01:40:23
3. Would love to see the chart of faculty & students also have the numbers from 1st class (where we started), 10th graduating class (me) and the 20th in addition, so everyone can really understand the growth and history
Hope Winograd
01:41:24
4.Were Professor Emeritus, like Dr. Schaer, status counted in the faculty numbers?
Tamara Downs
01:42:56
I agree with this former attitude of suffering as a badge of honor, needs to change
Tamara Downs
01:43:25
and we as former graduates and mentors need to welcome that change as a positive one for our profession’s future
Tamara Downs
01:43:38
and not admonish that we had it worse before
Hope Winograd
01:43:53
5. The well being part was good, but what has the college done to make sure that w/as much time the students are not interacting and getting vitamin C (connection) during the pandemic are truly ok.
Patricia Wlasuk
01:45:04
Will defer to Dean but not certain we can accurately identify historic faculty/student ratios over past 40 years.
liz Fitzpatrick
01:45:59
You will be missed so much, Marcela!
Audrey Kelleman
01:46:18
Thank you, Marcella :)
Marcela Brandao

Thank you! I'll still be in Gainesville so I'm not going far!
Marcela Brandao

RICHARD CARPENTER
01:50:14
Kudos to al the UF CVM staff for adapting to the Covid problem and keeping our students moving on. All our communications with current students are very positive!!
Marcela Brandao
01:50:49
Thank you Dr. Carpenter, it has been a team effort!
RICHARD CARPENTER
01:51:08
Is the curriculum committee still working on revising the current class curriculum?
RICHARD CARPENTER
01:51:59
Do we have the information of the pass rate for the NAVLE this year?
Scott Cornwell
01:52:06
I think Dean Zimmel needs to be cloned. It is so amazing how complex all of this has been and will be! Can Dean Zimmel explain a little more about the Offshore Student Clincial year? Is this relatively smooth to accommodate? Is it a plus?
liz Fitzpatrick
01:52:44
Miami Dade students came to ACAS.
Audrey Kelleman
01:53:22
Patricia, you are very muffled, when speaking.
Patricia Wlasuk
01:53:59
Good to know. Thank you. I'll try to adjust
Audrey Kelleman
01:54:48
And, as I understand, the offshores are treated as alumni per UFCVM ;)
Marcela Brandao
01:54:54
We wish we could clone her as well! It has been amazing to watch her steer the ship through some trying times!
Hope Winograd
01:55:12
6. Dean Lloyd promoted a children's book for Leadership, but it is an inside UF published book, called "The Line Leader," by Dr. Sowcik & Ms. Jones. Do you know how to get a copy of it?
liz Fitzpatrick
01:55:37
Has there been any discussion about continuing the relationship with ACAS for a clinical rotation similar to the Miami dade program? We have hosted since July, and would love to continue offering opportunities for students to do surgery on our shelter population! The rotation students have completed between 40-80 surgeries as a group every 2 weeks.
Marcela Brandao
01:56:25
Hello Dr. Winograd, I will look into that and send you information on the book as soon as I have it.
RICHARD CARPENTER
01:57:52
!!!! As I would have expected.
Marcela Brandao
01:58:33
We are so proud of how our students have risen to the occasion, truly amazing!
Patricia Wlasuk

I will try to find out how to find a copy of the book.
