    Pros

    High caseload at the veterinary hospital, great co-workers

    Cons

    Management of veterinary hospital leave much to be desired and faculty dvms not always interested in teaching interns/residents. Worchester is not a nice place to live.

    Make your attendings actually teach. That makes the crappy salary a little more tolerable.
