- The Stanford University Pre-Vet Society presents the 5th Annual Pre-Vet Expo. This Expo is a day-long conference for high school (Juniors and Seniors or 16 yrs old and above)*, college students, graduate students and interested high school staff and faculty who wish to learn more about the field of Veterinary Medicine. As a veterinarian, one can have an exciting and diverse career that offers opportunities to work not only in clinical practice, but also in academia, research, public health, and for the government/military.

- Learn about different areas of specialization from veterinary speakers
- Have lunch in small groups with 1or 2 vets and informally discuss your interests
- Hear from current veterinary students enrolled in several different veterinary schools
- Learn about ways to volunteer and gain experience
- Learn how to prepare for and apply to veterinary school

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.
