Second-year veterinary students, with faculty, technicians and staff provide the veterinary coursework campers will take, which is similar to actually veterinary education. Campers learn and study on our campus in laboratories and classrooms designed for veterinary students.
Camp participants will learn about veterinary medicine first-hand in classrooms, laboratories, and outdoor facilities that include Auburn’s raptor, equine, dairy, beef, and 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.
The Office of Professional and Continuing Education coordinates the camper’s registration, fees, meals and housing and chaperones.
