AVM is an intensive program where participants can explore the wide variety of careers available within veterinary medicine and discover first-hand what it is like to attend veterinary school.
For students who are trying to determine whether veterinary medicine is the right career path, AVM is a way to gain a deeper understanding of the profession. The program is also helpful for students who have already decided on a future in veterinary medicine, as it allows them to experience life as a veterinary student and explore opportunities within the field. Many past AVM participants have successfully gained admission to veterinary school at both Tufts and other schools.
During the week-long session, participants will: investigate the different specialty fields, spend time behind the scenes in hospitals shadowing veterinary students, gain hands-on experience working with their teaching animals, learn about their admission and financial aid process and more!
They offer two sessions for college students:
- 1st College Session: June 2nd–6th
- 2nd College Session: June 9th-13th
Full details, including eligibility, tuition, and the online application, can be found on their website at vet.tufts.edu/avm.
