Strauch Receives Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree, Metamora Herald

 Ashley Strauch, daughter of Jeff and Julie Strauch of Metamora, Ill., graduated from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree on May 12. The college is one of only 30 veterinary schools in the United States.

 Dr. Strauch and her fellow graduates in the Class of 2017 were educated under an innovative veterinary curriculum pioneered at Illinois. The new curriculum focused on integrating the clinical skills and basic sciences relevant to veterinary practice throughout the four-year doctoral degree program. Students in the Illinois program, unlike those in other veterinary curricula, spend 15 weeks during the first two years of study embedded in veterinary practice areas and practicing clinical skills in an extensive learning center equipped with models and simulations.

 Dr. Strauch graduated from Metamora Township High School in Metamora, Ill, in 2009. She is also a graduate of Iowa State University, Ames, earning a bachelor’s degree in animal science in 2013.
