Veterinary camps didn’t exist when I was a future veterinarian. They are amazing programs that a small number of veterinary schools in North America provide for younger students. While they vary slightly from school to school, campers typically spend 5 days exploring veterinary medicine and getting hands on experience with animals. In fact, campers often do things that I didn’t do until I was in veterinary school – like gowning and gloving for surgery. They are truly a future vet’s heaven.

For over 125 years, the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine has produced more than 6,400 veterinarians and more than 500 specialists and researchers. The Auburn Junior VET Camp, is one of the most prestigious in North America. Middle school students who wish to become veterinarians are able to learn about public health, food animals, wildlife, anatomy, imaging, and first aid, as well as gain valuable mentoring about veterinary science careers.

So what are you waiting for? Get out there and partner with your parents to enter our contest today.

This contest ended March 29th 2019
