Riley receives Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree

URBANA - Amber Riley, daughter of Rusty and Karen Riley of Shelbyville, 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 28 veterinary schools in the United States.

Dr. Riley and her fellow graduates in the Class of 2013 were the first to be 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. Riley will practice veterinary medicine at Banfield Pet Hospital, in Aberdeen, N.C., as an associate veterinarian.

Dr. Riley graduated from Shelbyville High School, in Shelbyville, Ill., in 2004. She is also a graduate of the MacMurray College, in Jacksonville, Ill., earning a bachelor of science degree in biology in 2008.
