Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association (SCAVMA)
The Student American Veterinary Medical Association (SAVMA) was created in 1969 as the national organization of veterinary students, which has enabled individual Student Chapters of the AVMA (SCAVMAs) to function effectively as a single unit on the national level. As of 2016, SAVMA was comprised of 35 student chapters at accredited veterinary medical schools/colleges representing a total of over 15,000 veterinary student members and associate members. The Student American Veterinary Medical Association (SAVMA) exists to support, empower, and inspire all veterinary students in improving their lives, education, and career, along with securing a better future for our profession through collaboration with our parent organization, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).
Principle activities, events, or programs:
SCAVMA provides a plethora of opportunities including continuing education lectures, wellness events, social events, and support to our members and the Auburn CVM.
How this group’s activities benefit the profession, university, and community:
Automatic Conversion to AVMA Membership. Student Chapter of the AVMA members who meet their SCAVMA requirements to be a member in good standing and have paid membership dues for all years they are in veterinary school at the time of graduation will be granted automatic conversion to AVMA membership upon graduation. This means no application to file and no dues to pay for the remainder of the year of graduation. Two additional years of reduced recent graduate AVMA membership dues to help lessen the financial burden of membership fees while searching for your veterinary career.
Apply for numerous monetary awards offered by SAVMA. Current members may view the SAVMA Awards, Competitions and Scholarships opportunities page for more information.
