Members of the DVM Class of 2022 enjoyed a Purdue Veterinary Medicine tradition Thursday, September 6, when they attended the annual DVM Stethoscope Dinner. Held in the Purdue Memorial Union, the event is co-sponsored by the Purdue Veterinary Alumni Association (PVAA), the Indiana Veterinary Medical Association (IVMA), and Patterson Veterinary. After remarks by Dean Willie Reed and representatives of the other sponsors, each student received a complimentary stethoscope. The event signals the start of the freshman classes’ veterinary education. The Stethoscope Dinner concluded with the classmates gathering for a formal picture outside at the entrance to the Purdue Memorial Union Great Hall. There are 84 students in the DVM Class of 2022. Congratulations to all!

A similar event was held August 20, when the Veterinary Nursing Stethoscope dinner honored PVM’s second-year veterinary nursing students.
