As you know, veterinary school is a challenge in and of itself.

But beyond the late night study sessions and anxiety over coursework, we know veterinary students face other challenges—concerns about performing terminal surgeries, creating alternative tracks, and finding other like-minded students and professionals to share their struggles with.

Perhaps you weren't concerned about traditional veterinary teaching methods as a student, but now wish you had known that there was a different way. Maybe you were concerned at the time, but just didn't know what to do.

As an HSVMA professional member, you can provide advice, support and encouragement for HSVMA student members, reminding them that veterinary school is not just a means to an end, but a time when positive change can occur. There is no required time commitment, and you may be as involved as much or as little as you want.

If you are interested in being an HSVMA mentor or would like more information about this opportunity, please send us your contact information and we'll be in touch.
