Student Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society

“The UC Davis chapter of SVECCS is excited to get this year started! We have a great new group of officers and are really excited to get the first year class involved.

Several officers made it out to IVECCS and we had a great time. IVECCS is a great conference and anyone who is interested in veterinary emergency and critical care should check it out. Students also have the opportunity to volunteer which is a great opportunity to meet students and faculty from other schools, as well as make the trip a little more afordable. Talk to one of the officers if you are interested in attending next year.

Also, if you missed our symposium last spring and would like a copy of the proceedings, please email:

Please check this website in the winter for more symposium information for the spring.”


"SVECCS strives to bring students into the diverse and exciting field of emergency and intensive care medicine. We support both the small and large animal services, and we aim to provide continuing education to local practitioners and technicians.

The club aims to offer a variety of opportunities to our student body, guided by the UC Davis faculty, residents, and interns, to aid students in applying the knowledge gained in the classroom to real world situations. Examples of the opportunities we aspire to bring to our student body are case rounds, hands-on labs, volunteer shadowing in the small animal emergency department, journal article discussions, and guest speakers.

SVECCS will fundraise in order to provide these opportunities for our student body. We also seek to give back to the UC Davis emergency and intensive care departments when financially feasible in the form of necessary supplies and equipment to increase the quality of patient care."
