SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Post-graduate education has never been more popular among recent graduates of veterinary schools in America, according to recent studies and reports published by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).

In the class of 2008, almost 40 percent of graduating new veterinarians reported that they were going into advanced education -- 89.2 percent of those into internships and 6 percent into residencies.
