Abstract: Student-directed learning has been featured in a program aimed at promoting the entry of veterinary students into science-based careers. Pursuant to that objective, students participated in workshops and role-playing exercises calculated to enhance self-confidence and the development of leadership, teamwork, and communication skills. Insights into research careers and the optimal sequencing of graduate training were also gained through self-study and simulated interviews for research or service positions in industry. The modules were well received by students, who found them enjoyable and relevant to their career aspirations.
