What is VetCAMP?
VetCAMP (Veterinary Career Aptitude and Mentoring Program) is an intensive weeklong summer program for high school students at the UGA campus in Athens. At VetCAMP, students experience veterinary medicine – and will be involved in activities aimed at evaluating their skills and competitiveness as future veterinarians. The week is filled with visits and hands-on learning at our veterinary teaching hospital, diagnostic labs, and the Poultry Diagnostic and Research Center — and highlighted by a behind-the-scenes tour of the Georgia Aquarium. In addition, campers learn about what vet school is all about – from admissions to classes to study abroad opportunities, to the wide variety of career paths veterinary medicine has to offer!
UGA VetCAMP 2023 will be hosted June 4 – June 10, 2023.
The application period for VetCAMP 2023 is opened from December 12, 2022 – January 23, 2023.
