Production Animal Medicine Club (PAMC)
The Production Animal Medicine Club strives to advance veterinary student knowledge and passion towards the health and welfare of food producing animals and the challenges facing the industries. Members will learn to benefit society as leaders in veterinary medicine and the community. We accomplish this through informative lectures led by industry leaders and hands-on wet labs.
Principle Activities, Events, or Programs:
We hold various lunch and dinner meetings to cover topics including: pork, fish, poultry, and cattle industry overview; major disease concerns of the industries; important procedures to maintain productivity; and learning how to communicate with the community on issues such as antibiotic use and housing facilities.
Wet labs include necropsy and breeding soundness exams.
How this group’s activities benefit the profession, university, and community:
The food industry needs veterinarians passionate about animal welfare and knowledgeable on how the industry works. Production Animal Medicine Club is dedicated to helping the community become more comfortable with the proper use of antibiotics and treatment of production animals. We prepare students to enter the profession confident in how the production industry works and their role in it.
How to get involved with this group:
We hold an interest meeting at the beginning of each academic year and students have the option of choosing from semester or yearly membership. Interested students can email class officers at any point in time.
