DVM Application

Undergraduate Application

This program opened my eyes to all of the possibilities, paths, and career opportunities that veterinary medicine has to offer. I used to think that the only paths to choose between were specialties and/or boards before continuing on to clinical medicine. However, this program has allowed me to hear the stories of countless veterinarians and their different career paths not only through the weekly seminars, but also through the exposure to many faculty members at PVM.
