Laboratory Animal Medicine Club

Mission Statement

We are the Laboratory Animal Medicine Club.  Our goal is to educate, assist, and encourage a pursuit in laboratory animal medicine and/or research. We want to educate students on what being a laboratory animal veterinarian or investigator means, how it affects veterinary medicine globally, and what opportunities are available. We want to assist those who are interested in a career in this field by providing them with contacts and, if available, hands on learning experiences and labs to furthers their skills. Finally, we want to encourage a pursuit in laboratory animal medicine and/or research by organizing and directing our club based on the needs of the students in each academic year.
