Veterinary Camps Offer Youth Chance to Experience Profession
By Janet McCoy
Auburn, Alabama —
Three camps this summer will offer youth the first-hand experience of being a veterinarian, giving some of them an early insight into their chosen profession.
Eighty youth will participate in three camps at the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine, coordinated in partnership with Auburn’s Office of Continuing and Adult Education and the college’s Continuing Education office. The camps are popular, booking up as far as six months before the actual camp. This year, students from as far away as Maryland will be attending.
Two Senior Veterinary Camps, one for 9th-11th graders and one specifically designed for 12th graders, will be held June 2-6; and a Junior Veterinary Camp, for 6th-8th graders, is set for June 16-20.
All three camps are conducted by 17 second- and third-year College of Veterinary Medicine professional students, who have organized, and will teach and run the camps with assistance from faculty and staff.
Kris Street, the outreach programs coordinator with the College of Veterinary Medicine, said the educational programs offered during camp simulate what professional veterinary medical students receive, just in a condensed version.
“The camp provides hands-on experiences and opportunities for youngsters interested in becoming veterinarians and it allows our current veterinary students to experience academia, by preparing lesson plans and classroom instruction.
“Our goal is for more students to become interested in science and show them that there are many professional opportunities available in the field of veterinary medicine,” she added.
Chris Reeves, a third-year student in the College of Veterinary Medicine this fall, said camp “is a great way to get kids interested and show them that science and medicine are fun. It also teaches good animal husbandry skills no matter what your career path.”
The Mobile, Ala. native says students will learn “animal science as well as some new ideas in veterinary medicine.”
Students at all sessions will learn about veterinary medicine first-hand in classrooms, laboratories and college facilities. Some of the educational programs will include anatomy, parasitology, histology, large animal medicine and small animal medicine surgery.
All campers will also learn how to clean a wound and suture and bandage on a teaching model. Senior-level students will watch a demonstration of a 3-D printer to create a scaled 3-D model of a skeleton from high-resolution CT scan as well as observe a physical therapy demonstration in the Wilford and Kate Bailey Small Animal Teaching Hospital.
Camp participants will tour the equine, dairy and bio-secure swine units. Students will learn about public health, food animals, wildlife, anatomy, imaging, and first aid, as well as gain valuable mentoring about veterinary science careers.
Students will experience campus-life while residing in Auburn's resident dormitories, eating at campus dining facilities, and enjoying evening social and recreational activities. Camp participants will have 24/7 counselor supervision.
