Veterinary Scholars Summer Research Program

Here's what others had to say…

[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.

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.

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