The UGA College of Veterinary Medicine is dedicated to training future veterinarians, conducting research related to animal and human diseases, and providing veterinary services for animals and their owners.
The College of Veterinary Medicine has been selected to host the National Student Veterinary (SAVMA) Symposium in March. This event will bring over 1000 veterinary students from all over the country to Athens and place our college, region and state at the forefront of veterinary medicine. Unfortunately, preparation for this event will conflict with our traditional Open House and as a result we will not be able to hold Open House in 2019. We know this will disappoint many people, but we are committed to bringing the event back in 2020 with all of the same educational and fun opportunities as in years’ past. Stay tuned to vet.uga.edu for additional details later in 2019.
