Veterinary Career Day

Annual program in the Fall of each year to help West Virginia high school students and their parents learn more about requirements for admittance into West Virginia University, requirements for entry into veterinary schools and the West Virginia Contract System.

2023 Veterinary Career Day will be Saturday, Oct. 14.

The Program features a series of short presentations from a variety of veterinary professionals and will give attendees an opportunity to interact one on one with presenters and educators. 

Veterinarians will offer insight on what their position entails professionally and what a typical “day” practicing veterinary medicine includes. Faculty from the WVU Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design will be present to discuss the Davis-Michael Pre-Veterinary Scholars Program.

An overview of the West Virginia Veterinary School Contract system for West Virginia residents will also be presented. 

The free event is open to middle, high school and college students interested in learning more about the field of veterinary medicine. Parents, high school teachers, counselors and college advisers are also welcome to attend. The program schedule begins promptly at 9 a.m. The program will be at the WVU Erickson Alumni Center.
