Veterinary Medicine Surgery Club

Veterinary Medicine Surgery Club

The UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine Surgery Club is an organization run by veterinary students. The club officers are dedicated to promoting the education of veterinary students in the field of surgery. We host lectures pertaining to the knowledge of surgical procedures and techniques, and we also provide information about externship and intership opportunities. In addition, Surgery Club offers basic and advanced wet labs in which students from all classes can learn how to glove and gown for surgeries, do hand and instrument ties, and expand their tissue-handling skills by practicing on cadavers. In the spring, we also host a fun but competitive Surgical Olympics event that measures participants' speed, dexterity, and surgical knowledge as they tackle many exercise stations.
