Hello! My name is Matt Schiffman, and I am currently a fourth year veterinary student at Purdue University. Prior to traveling to the Midwest for veterinary school, I received my Bachelors of Science in Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences from Penn State.  Even as I have migrated further west for school, I am grateful to still call New Jersey, the state I was born and raised in, my home. 

My veterinary career began when I was 13, where I spent Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings shadowing at a local veterinary hospital. For three years I observed, learned, and grew into a motivated and aspiring veterinarian. That same motivation and aspiration continues to push me today as I enter my last year in veterinary school, inching closer and closer to receiving my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.

When I am not in the veterinary clinic, you can find me attending Mets baseball games, enjoying theatre and the arts, or spending time with my 4-year-old yellow Labrador Retriever named Ducky.

My plan post-graduation is to work in a small animal private practice with aspirations of partnership/ownership. My current interest and focus in veterinary medicine include Internal Medicine, Business and Practice Management, Physical Rehabilitation, and Veterinary Entrepreneurship.
