UGA VET for a Day ~ 9/25/13
Sponsored by the David Forehand Foundation, the 9th Annual Vet School for a Day will be held Wednesday, September 25, 2013.
What is Vet School for a Day?
Through this program, we hope to educate students and school counselors about the many career opportunities within the field of veterinary medicine. We invite you and your students to participate in this exciting event.
Our typical program includes a tour of the Teaching Hospital, a meeting with faculty from different areas of interest in our profession, and an informal discussion with current veterinary students. Weather permitting, you and your students will have lunch on our front lawn with veterinary students and faculty. After lunch, one of our distinguished alumni often speaks about his or her career.
Space for this popular program is limited, and we take an appropriate representation of students from each congressional district in Georgia. Please nominate students who are especially interested in veterinary medicine or animal health. We also require that all students (or groups) be accompanied by an adult chaperone – a parent, counselor, or teacher.
There is no cost for students, but to offset the cost of food there is a small fee for each chaperone (parent, counselor, and/or teacher), payable on the day of the event. Vet School for a Day is proudly sponsored by the David Forehand Foundation, based in Atlanta.
