Veterinary Scholars Summer Research Program

Here's what others had to say…

The National Veterinary Scholar Symposium was a great way to network and hear other ways to incorporate research into our careers.

--DVM Participant 2018

[I] loved learning so much about something I knew so little [about], loved the interactions with my lab mates and classmates, and especially interacting with other students and discussing their research at NVSS.

--DVM Participant 2018

You learn critical thinking skills, how to prepare for a research career, you get paid, and if you're a DVM student you get to travel at the end of the summer.

--DVM Participant 2018

It’s a good way to open your mind to alternative career paths with your DVM, and even if it’s not for everyone, it’ll help them realize that.

--DVM Participant 2018

An overall great experience. Great mentor and lab mates, interesting and unique research project, and a really good opportunity to dip your feet into research to have an idea of whether or not it is right for you.

--DVM Participant 2018

Good opportunities to network with faculty and see clinical research.

--DVM Participant 2018

Good experience to help narrow [down] a future career path.

--DVM Participant 2018

My favorite experience in the "Summer Research Program" was being granted the opportunity to present the information that we obtained and worked for over the span of the summer. It was awarding to explain and reflect on our individual projects and also learn about the other projects in the program. It was especially awarding to have gained more skills and knowledge that pertain to research, as this will assist me in future opportunities and broadened my experiences.

--Undergradute Participant 2018

I thoroughly enjoyed meeting peers and faculty members and learning about their experiences. I learned about many different opportunities during my visit to Covance and during the poster presentation that will help me in my future as a veterinarian.

--Undergradute Participant 2018

[My mentor] was incredibly fun and funny, while constantly teaching me new things and providing me with constructive feedback...Thanks to her support, I recently presented a case at a veterinary pathology conference, which was an incredible experience and my first time speaking at such an event.

--DVM Participant 2017

Looking back on this summer, I am thrilled to reflect on all the new skills I have gained.

--DVM Participant 2017

My favorite experience was gaining research skills and knowledge that will help me later on as I apply for Veterinary school. Presenting the information that we learned and worked with was really rewarding.

Goals

The goal of the Veterinary Scholars Summer Research Program is to increase the number of veterinarians involved in biomedical and clinical research.
