Summer program: Adventures in Veterinary Medicine

posted Jan 9, 2017, 7:31 AM by Lynn Gillie


We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2017 Adventures in Veterinary Medicine (AVM) program at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University.

AVM is an exciting and intensive program where participants can explore the wide variety of careers available within veterinary medicine and discover first-hand what it is like to attend veterinary school.

For students who are trying to determine whether veterinary medicine is the right career path, AVM is a great way to gain a deeper understanding of the profession. The program is also helpful for students who have already decided on a future in veterinary medicine, as it allows them to experience life as a veterinary student and explore opportunities within the field. Many of our past AVM participants have successfully gained admission to veterinary school both here at Tufts and at other schools.

During the week-long session, participants will

·       investigate the different specialty fields

·       spend time behind the scenes in our hospitals shadowing veterinary students

·       gain hands-on experience working with our teaching animals

·       learn about our admission and financial aid process

·       and more!

We offer two sessions for college students as well as a session for adult, non-traditional students.

          Adult Session 2:         May 1–5

            College Session 3:      June 5–9

            College Session 4:      June 12–16

Full details, including eligibility, tuition, and the online application, can be found on our website.

We hope that you will share this information with your students and with any other appropriate departments at your institution. If you or your students have any questions, please feel free to contact us at AVM@tufts.edu or 508-839-7962.
