Spring Events Provide CE and Other Learning Opportunities

March 19, 2007

Veterinary student clubs organize symposia throughout the school year to offer up-to-date overviews on veterinary topics of special interest. Presenters include UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine professors and guest experts. Most symposia aim to inform veterinarians, technicians and veterinary students. Occasionally, these meetings provide information suitable for interested members of the lay public. Members of the media are welcome to attend selected lectures to learn more about veterinary science and School of Veterinary Medicine projects in animal health.

Symposium fees support the mission of each student organization. Students may receive assistance from co-sponsors. Please contact the representatives of each organization for more information about attending a symposium or ordering proceedings from the events. 

Please note that schedules and topics may change. Please visit the individual club's Web site for contact information about the presentation that interests you.
