  • Using email information in the Directory, employers are encouraged to contact senior students directly for resumes, cover letters and/or to schedule mutually convenient interview times.

Career Night

The School of Veterinary Medicine Career Night provides DVM and PhD candidates the opportunity to network with practitioners and health care companies. Hosted by the Student Chapter of the AVMA (SCAVMA), this annual event offers students the chance to build relationships and set up future externship, internship, and employment opportunities. It also exposes students to the diverse range of health care companies and vendors that serve the veterinary field and familiarize students with the products and services they offer.
