American Association of Feline Practioners (SCAAFP)
Auburn’s student chapter of American Association of Feline Practitioners (SCAAFP) strives to increase awareness and the general knowledge of feline medicine and handling of veterinary students. We work to give students additional opportunities to expand their knowledge and skills outside of their studies through interactive lectures, discussion, and wet labs in hopes to make well-rounded veterinarians and improve our profession as a whole.
Principle Activities, Events, or Programs:
We offer Feline Fact Fridays, Case Study Discussion Night, Interactive Lectures from Fabulous Speakers, National Cat Day (Fall), Hairball Awareness Day (Spring), Wet Labs, and more!
How this group’s activities benefit the profession, university, and community:
This club offers the opportunity for advancing general knowledge about one of our more challenging species as veterinarians, felines. Our focus is on improving education and skills here at AUCVM, while promoting feline awareness for all of the community through outreach projects. As future veterinarians, we feel that it is important for us to be confident in handling and diagnosing all species. We hope to allow students the opportunity to fine-tune their skills and help to give back to the community that has already given us so much.
How to get involved with this group:
SCAAFP is open to all students. Please contact any of our officers, our advisor, or attend an interest meeting to get involved today! We look forward to meeting you!
