Veterinary Medicine Summer Programs

    There is no better way to learn about the field of veterinary medicine and receive hands-on training with animals than by enrolling in a veterinary medicine summer program. By delving into the study of veterinary medicine pre-college, students are able to assess their competence in the subject and their desire to pursue higher education. Typically, students who choose a career in veterinary medicine complete undergraduate studies in a STEM (science, technology, education and mathematics) discipline and then go on to obtain a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM or VMD). These summer programs give teens the opportunity to interact directly with animals while receiving guidance from university faculty members and using resources in a college setting. Students are exposed to a variety of subcategories of veterinary medicine, including work with small animals, domestic, equines, food animal and conservation. The programs are held at college campuses, often for credit, and features commuter or residential options.
