Purdue’s Veterinary Technology Program is Turning 40!

June 24, 2016

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Purdue Veterinary Technology Program, which is cause for celebration!  As the nurses in the veterinary medical profession, veterinary technicians are essential members of the veterinary team.  Whether you’re an alumnus, student or friend of the program, please join us in celebrating this exciting milestone!

Purdue Veterinary Medicine will be commemorating the success of the program and its alumni throughout the year. The next opportunity will be at the AVMA Annual Convention in San Antonio.  Those attending the convention can reconnect with classmates at the PVM alumni reception on August 8. Click here for more information.

Several anniversary events are planned in conjunction with the 2016 Purdue Veterinary Conference, which will be held September 27 – October 1. Registration is now open!  Kicking-off the special anniversary events will be the PVAA sponsored $5 hot breakfast buffet during the Dr. Roger L. Lukens Lecture with Dr. Pete Bill on Wednesday, September 28. The Awards Celebration Dinner Wednesday night will feature the presentation of the 2016 Distinguished Veterinary Technology Alumna Award to Alicea (Schaeffer) Howell (PU DVM 2003). Then, join us for Meet Me @ the Mixer on Thursday evening as we recognize all alumni classes of the Veterinary Technology Program and present 40 Vet Techs for 40 Years!  In honor of the program’s anniversary, we are seeking nominations for a representative from each of the 40 Purdue Veterinary Technology graduating classes.  Click here for nomination criteria and to submit your nomination form. Hurry! Nominations are due July 15.

In addition to celebrating the Veterinary Technology Program, we want to celebrate Purdue Veterinary Technology alumni. Help us raise awareness of our amazing alumni and their impact on the veterinary technology profession and our communities. Click here to complete a short survey.
