Early Veterinary Student Bovine Experience Program
(Formerly the Early Veterinary Student Dairy Experience Program)
EVSBEP stands for Early Veterinary Student Bovine Experience Program. There is a state and national need for veterinarians that are interested in working with food producing animals. EVSBEP is designed to expose students to commercial cattle operations and to veterinarians working with cattle. Since most veterinary students do not come from agricultural backgrounds, exposure to animal agriculture and veterinarians working with cattle creates awareness of new career possibilities. The UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine uses the program both to increase the number of students choosing to work with cattle following graduation, as well as to support students that have an active interest in veterinary careers working with production livestock.
