The following invitation is being extended by UC Davis veterinary students.

The Veterinary Student Outreach Club at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine would like to invite high school students to our annual Future Day. The purpose of this event is to promote higher education, demonstrate career possibilities, and expose students to science specific to veterinary medicine.This event will be held at the School of Veterinary Medicine at UC Davis on Sunday, May 13, 2012.   

The Veterinary Student Outreach Club has hosted similar events in the past with great success. Approximately 100 students from all over California attend Future Day and participate in activities relating to comparative anatomy, laboratory medicine, pathology, wildlife medicine, small animal medicine, large animal medicine, and more.These activities are led by current veterinary students who are excited to share their knowledge and answer any questions participants may have about the profession.

Since the veterinary profession is centered on applied sciences, all of the activities will focus on the use of science in veterinary medicine and the importance of a professional education.  We hope to inspire young students to look at the applied sciences as a possible career path and to introduce them to programs colleges have to offer. The veterinary students are from diverse backgrounds and education systems and can provide educational advice to a wide range of students.

Future Day will be an exciting event for all high school students interested in science.The event will be held on Sunday, May 13, 2012 in Gladys Valley Hall at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine.

Future Day is a FREE event for students, and includes lunch and refreshments. 

Check-in will begin at 8:30am, and the program will start at 9:15am.
