CROW welcomes new veterinarian intern

By Staff | Jan 14, 2015


CROW welcomes Molly Que Lien, DVM, from Michigan, who joined the CROW hospital team on January 1.

Lien received her DVM degree from Michigan State University, College of Veterinary Medicine in 2011. Since graduating, Molly had been working as an associate veterinarian for Arenac Bay Veterinary Services in Standish, MI, where she practiced mixed animal care.

Over the last year, the number of resumes along with the caliber of candidates CROW has been receiving has dramatically increased.

Therefore, Lien was up against some heavy competition, and she was chosen for her multidisciplinary approach to the health and conservation of our wildlife ecosystems, thereby promoting CROW’s “one world, one health” approach to conservation medicine.

“Through my CROW internship, I will further my knowledge of this field and become an advocate for wildlife conservation,” stated Lien.

CROW interns participate in daily hospital and rehabilitation center activities, working closely with boarded veterinary specialists, certified veterinary technicians and licensed rehabilitators.

CROW’s 4,800 square foot hospital provides state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, including digital radiography, ultrasound, endoscopy, digital tonometry, in-house lab, dedicated surgical suite and critical care units, electronic database, and enriched, welfare-oriented rehabilitation caging.

Interns learn to identify disease patterns, determine appropriate treatment protocols and have primary case management of patients in the hospital.

They also learn cutting edge anesthesia, soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, and necropsy techniques. In addition to clinical duties, interns participate in research and conservation projects, give case and journal club rounds, and help teach and coordinate students, staff and volunteers.

The program is one year in duration.
