In this week’s episode of That Vet Life Podcast, Dr. Moriah McCauley is joined by Dr. Anna Schozer to discuss the questions that young veterinarians should ask before joining a practice, as well as highlighting the red and green flags to watch out for during an interview.

As a small animal emergency veterinarian, Dr. Anna Schozer practices in the state of New Hampshire. After graduating from the University of Missouri in 2021 with a DVM, she returned to the east coast and fell in love with relief work. During her second year of veterinary school, she launched an online health and fitness company that has since assisted over 250 women in finding balance in their lives. Building on this, Dr. Anna Schozer is also a talented content creator who shares educational and inspiring content about the field on social media.
