Dr. Jerry Masty began teaching career Ohio State in the fall of 1984. Currently, his primary responsibility is teaching the gross anatomy of large and small animals and neuroanatomy in the core veterinary curriculum. He also offers three elective courses focusing on surgical anatomy, feline anatomy and neuroanatomy that are offered to second year students. He is a recipient of the OSU Alumni Award for Teaching Excellence. His teaching has also been recognized by the Carl J. Norden Distinguished Teaching Award and the Dean’s Award for Teaching Creativity.

Dr. Masty is fortunate to have had wonderful mentors who helped him develop as a teacher. He is honored to work with first-year faculty as they begin their teaching careers. One of the most rewarding areas of discussion in his cohort has been recognizing the relationship between the use of student feedback instruments with the development and modification of teaching skills.
