:Hi Frank, I am a registered veterinary technician and a staff member of a large University medical school (30 years). I am employed as an "expert" in animal husbandry. All my years of experience in raising and handling animals makes me a valuable member of the team. While I can hold my own with the pHd's that I work with, my knowledge is different than theirs. They respect me for what I know and I respect them for the vast amounts of knowledge they have. The pHd program at our University is rigorous (most of our graduate students run on the ragged edge of health trying to learn and keep up with their independant research projects). pHd's must present work that is on the cutting edge to get and keep grants. One of our researchers here is a world recognized expert in reptile physiology and anatomy. He was the one who discovered the mechanizim that monitor lizards use to pump oxygen into their lungs when they run (most lizards cannot run and breath at the same time). With as much experience as you have who in their right mind would call you "unqualified"? Unqualified to do what?
