Start your journey to vet school
Get a glimpse of what it takes to become a veterinarian. Join us for our popular one-day Vet School for a Day program.
What is Vet School for a Day?
Vet School for a Day is designed for high school juniors and seniors in Georgia and South Carolina who are seriously interested in preparing for, and getting into, vet school.
The goal of VSFD is to educate students who have a keen interest in the many career opportunities that exist in veterinary medicine. The annual program is typically held in September and includes a tour of the UGA Veterinary Teaching Hospital, meetings with faculty & students from different areas of interest, and an admissions overview. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from our students and alumni on their career paths and experiences. Our office is expanding the VSFD program to include virtual options.
Vet School for a Day is currently planned for Fall 2022. Please check back in late summer 2022 for more details.
