Dr. Pauline Prince


  • Coordinator of Clinical Services, CVM

MSU CVM Clinical Psychologist Pauline Prince offers a comprehensive service model for all at MSU CVM. This model includes:

  • Evidence-based learning and teaching
  • Collaborative decision making
  • Therapeutic intervention
  • Disability services
  • Professional consultation
  • Crisis prevention and intervention
  • Trauma response

A board-certified neuropsychologist with nearly 30 years of experience working with students, Dr. Prince is committed to meeting the clinical and learning needs of MSU CVM students, faculty and staff.  She specializes in providing therapeutic counseling services to those who have been diagnosed with anxiety and depression and can help them develop strategies to meet their individual needs to manage academics, as well as life stressors. In her work with students and school faculty and staff, Dr. Prince has served on trauma teams and participated in crisis response after student death from suicide, vehicle accidents, and other forms of trauma.  She has also coordinated resources and staff to effectively respond to traumatic events.  In addition, Dr. Prince has experience in working with students who self-harm, experience panic attacks, and develop health-related issues as a result of chronic stress. 

Transitions are difficult, the training and academic demands on veterinary students can be intense, and the work life of veterinarians can be extremely stressful, so Dr. Prince is a much-appreciated resource for the CVM family.
