Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine Adventures in Veterinary Medicine Program


Tufts is pleased to announce that they are now accepting applications for the 2014 Adventures in Veterinary Medicine (AVM) program at Tufts University Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine.

AVM is an exciting and intensive program where participants can explore the wide variety of careers available within veterinary medicine and discover first-hand what it is like to attend veterinary school.

For students who are trying to determine whether veterinary medicine is the right career path, AVM is a great way to gain a deeper understanding of the profession. The program is also helpful for students who have already decided on a future in veterinary medicine, as it allows them to experience life as a veterinary student and explore opportunities within the field. Many of our past AVM participants have successfully gained admission to veterinary school both here at Tufts and at other schools.

During the week-long session, participants will

  • investigate the different specialty fields
  • spend time behind the scenes in our hospitals shadowing veterinary students
  • gain hands-on experience working with our teaching animals
  • learn about our admission and financial aid process
  • and more!

They offer two sessions for college students as well as a session for adult, non-traditional students.

Adult Session 2:         May 5–9

            College Session 3:      June 2–6

            College Session 4:      June 9-13
