VFourth-Year, Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine
A native of New Orleans, Louisiana, Maxbetter has been cultivating his interest in veterinary medicine since a young age. From being read Russian children’s stories about “Doctor Aybolit” by his grandmother, to going with his parents to see horses at a nearby stable as a child, to working at a local small animal hospital, he has thoroughly enjoyed learning about animals over the years.
He studied Organismic and Evolutionary Biology at Harvard before beginning veterinary school in 2014. Some of his interests within the profession include One Health and zoological medicine, the latter of which was sparked by a summer internship at the Israeli Wildlife Hospital. Maxbetter also enjoys playing soccer, biking, hiking, writing raps, making music videos, and spending time with his friends and family.
