Purdue to Host 2016 Pre-Veterinary Symposium

Purdue University will play host to the 2016 American Pre-Veterinary Medical Association (APVMA) Symposium March 11 and 12. The symposium brings together prospective veterinary students to learn more about the field of veterinary medicine. The two-day event will highlight diverse veterinary careers and give students the opportunity to network with members of the profession.

The first day of the symposium is for check-in and networking with fellow students through a dinner and the Pre-Vet Olympics. The majority of the second day consists of lectures and labs along with helpful informational sessions for pre-veterinary students. Lectures will cover a range of topics, from the application process to a day in the life of a zoo veterinarian. The hands-on labs include building skills such as suturing and learning about anatomy through necropsy. Throughout the day, exhibitor tables will be available for students to visit and to meet and network with representatives from veterinary schools or businesses. The symposium concludes with a formal dinner where the next year's APVMA officers and symposium host are elected.

The dinners will both be hosted in the Purdue Memorial Union Ballrooms and the lectures and labs will be held at the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine or at nearby off-campus locations.  The Purdue organizers are interested in hearing from prospective exhibitors and sponsors. They can be contacted at purdueprevet@gmail.com, or via the Purdue Pre-Veterinary Medical Association Facebook page.
