Scope of Practice: October Dogtor of the Month – Howl-ween

Dogtor of the Month is a monthly feature about the furry friends of our University of Illinois College of Medicine students. Scope of Practice editors vote on student submissions to name monthly winners. Through this feature, our hope is to share more of our UICOMR community and bring some joy to our readers.

See our winning dogtors and their stories below!

Resident: This is Buttercup the Leopard Gecko. Don’t jump to conclusions about the scary, scaly costume he wears all year. He wears it to hide his goofiness and friendliness. Beware though, he may try to sell you car insurance.
