SAVMA Student Symposium

Every year a veterinary school hosts an educational symposium for veterinary students from across the country. The three day program consists of interactive wet labs, lectures, academic and athletic competitions, an exhibit hall, and the SAVMA House of Delegates bi-annual meeting. SAVMA Symposium is an educational opportunity that exposes students to a variety of topics outside their typical curriculum, while offering unique networking experiences and career building skills.
