Dan Burba grew up on a farm in eastern Kentucky and dreamed of becoming a veterinarian. He came to Oklahoma State University in 1986 to complete an internship followed by a residency. Even though he left OSU in 1990 upon completion of those positions, Oklahoma remained a favorite of his. So much so that when invited to interview for an open position at the center’s Veterinary Medical Hospital, he said he “couldn’t miss that opportunity.”
