UT College of Veterinary Medicine Holds Veterinary Summer Experience

The UT College of Veterinary Medicine is holding its Veterinary Summer Experience for high school juniors and seniors who have an interest in veterinary medicine. The six-week program will engage students in a variety of experiences for them to learn about all areas of the veterinarian field. They will job shadow for five-weeks at a veterinarian practice in their local area, and then complete one week at the veterinary college in Knoxville. Students will also learn more about the UT College of Veterinary Medicine program and what is has to offer prospective students.
