Always dreamed of being a veterinarian? Join the SPVS to learn more about careers in veterinary medicine!

The Stanford Pre-Vet Society (formerly Stanford Undergraduate Pre-vet Club) was formed several years ago by Dr. Donna M. Bouley, DVM, Ph.D, (“Dr. B”) a Professor in Comparative Medicine. Dr. B. realized that Stanford undergrads interested in veterinary medicine felt somewhat isolated in a “sea” of pre-med students. Therefore, it became her mission to distribute information regarding career opportunities in veterinary medicine and to provide information on the specific requirements needed to apply to the highly competitive veterinary colleges.

Since 2003, the SUPVC offers undergraduates a way to meet, learn from, and interact with fellow pre-vet enthusiasts. In addition, the club is associated with the Department of Comparative Medicine, which brings the experience and background of 11 faculty and staff veterinarians.

It is the goal of the SPVS to provide enthusiastic undergraduates with opportunities to meet departmental and local practicing veterinarians, receive guidance regarding veterinary career choices, and to share common preveterinary experiences.
