The Summer Vet Program is a student’s ticket to the world of veterinary medicine. For students who are serious about becoming a veterinarian, this is a super opportunity to look into the real and sometimes gritty field of veterinary medicine. Through presentation, demonstrations, laboratory visits, and hands-on activities, students discover what modern veterinary medicine is about. Some of the activities of the program include:
Participants meet professors, practitioners and students in the discipline and have ample opportunity to talk with them. Last year’s schedule can be viewed here. Additional information about CSU’s professional veterinary medicine program can be found on the CVBMS website.
The 2017 Summer Vet Program will take place June 19 – 23, 2017 from 12:45 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. at Colorado State University. It is highly encouraged that students combine this experience with the SciTrek Program for a full day of science-based activities.
The application will open in early January for 2017 and will require a written essay from the students wishing to participate. The application deadline will be mid-February and selections will be announced by March 1st. Once selected, registrations and full payment will be due by May 31st.
