Plot Synopsis

LIFE AT VET U is a six-part reality series that takes viewers behind the scenes of the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine (Penn Vet) as six students embark on a journey to graduation -- the culmination of four intense, but rewarding, years of never-ending studying, round-the-clock rotations and unpredictable cases. This series features unprecedented access to the school's two internationally renowned teaching hospitals -- Ryan Hospital for companion animals and New Bolton Center hospital for large animals. From the intricate work of cataract surgery, to a stallion collection for artificial insemination, each student gets the hands-on experience they need to one day tackle these cases out in the real world. Both personal and professional relationships evolve amid life-changing moments for both student and animal, but it's all worth it in the end at graduation when they get to call themselves veterinarians. As graduation approaches, the students brace themselves for the most important day of their career -- Match Day -- which determines if they have been placed in a coveted internship. Do they get placed at their dream hospital, or do they have to scramble to even find a placement?
On Saturday, November 5, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT, Animal Planet premiered the season finale of LIFE AT VET U. In the season ender, "Race to the Finish," it's just days until graduation as the students finish up their final rotations. As they prepare for their futures, the students say their goodbyes to Penn Vet, and walk across the stage to finally claim the title V.M.D.
