Our goal is simple, ENCOURAGE future veterinarians to explore their dream and show them HOW they can do it today.
Since its launch, Vet Set Go has provided scholarships to veterinary camps, given away tens of thousands of books, and provided free educational content and games to hundreds of thousands of future veterinarians across the globe via its website.
Veterinary medicine is the only profession where the majority of its members, made their career decision before they were 13 years of age. Each year, millions of new elementary and middle school students make their own decision to become animal doctors. They are looking for guidance on what they should do to explore their dream. Vet Set Go is here to support them.
Every year, we provide scholarships to veterinary camps such as the Junior Veterinary Camp at Auburn College of Veterinary Medicine. These camps allow aspiring veterinarians to explore veterinary medicine and begin building a lifelong love of science.
"Not only did she have the time of her life ... she also walked away with a new love of science.”
Vet Set Go also offers the award-winning Vet Set Go! book. This book provides future veterinarians ideas on what they can do today to explore their dream of becoming a veterinarian. It has six chapters of information on how they can avoid age barriers and begin shadowing veterinarians, volunteering, and working with shelter animals today. This book is a Mom’s Choice award winner. It also won the Benjamin Franklin award for Best Book in the Youth Non-fiction category.
To get future veterinarians off to a good start, Vet Set Go offers the Become a Veterinarian Quiz. This is a one-of-a-kind questionnaire evaluates the experience and educational background of an aspiring veterinarian and then provides them with customized advice on what they should do to explore their dream of becoming a vet. The report they receive is customized for them based on their answers (There are over 500 different possible types of advice a user can receive.) The only way they are going to receive better advice is have a veterinarian personally mentor them.
Vet Set Go encourages all aspiring veterinarians to build a love of science as strong as their love for animals.
In our free “Science of Veterinary Medicine” section, we share cases and teach basic scientific concepts such as hypothermia, cataracts of the eye, echocardiograms, and neurologic conditions from neck injuries. In the coming months we will be introducing Beneath the Skin, Scale, Fur & Feather – the first anatomy coloring book developed specifically for middle and high school aspiring veterinarians.
Each year, we provide scholarships to veterinary camps such as the Junior Veterinary Camp at Auburn College of Veterinary Medicine. These camps allow aspiring veterinarians to explore veterinary medicine and begin building a lifelong love of science. Even if they decided not become veterinarians, we hope these experiences motivate the students to explore opportunities in other STEM career fields.
