House Pets of the MSTP

If you ask our students, many of them will tell you that one of the best things about the UAB MSTP is its focus on families. And for many of us, that family includes some animal friends! We all recently found ourselves sharing pictures of our pets with each other, and we figured we would make a little blog post out of it to show off some of the wild creatures who help keep us sane during medical/graduate school.

So without further ado… please enjoy some of the (house) pets of the MSTP!
