Zoological Medicine Resident Dr. Rachel Ferris and the rest of the medical team conduct an annual checkup on an aardvark at the Sacramento Zoo. Rachel is a recent UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine graduate, now working at the Sacramento Zoo as part of her three year residency program. Since 1970 UC Davis has had an ongoing partnership providing veterinarian specialists to the Sacramento Zoo and utilizing it to train veterinary students. They work out of the Dr. Murray E Fowler Veterinary Hospital, located at the zoo, and named after UC Davis faculty member Murray Fowler who founded the zoo residency program.
