Welcome to the RVC Shelter Medicine Club!
Founded in 2019, we combine a student chapter of the Association of Shelter Veterinarians in the USA and membership with the Association of Charity Vets in the UK to recognise this growing specialty. Our club aims to provide opportunities for students interested in shelter and charity medicine through regular specialist talks, related clinical skills sessions, fundraising and volunteering for local shelters/charities, conference attendance and development of a relevant EMS database. We welcome membership from all courses and years as we aim to have activities on offer for all!
We are currently virtual due to COVID 19, therefore in person activities will unfortunately be limited, but we look forward to getting back out in the world of shelter medicine for some hands on fun soon! Please look out for our virtual events that we have planned for the 2021 academic year as well as in-person events COVID permitting!
Subs are £5 to become a member! This gives you access to all online talks and events you would like to attend.
Please feel free to add your details to our sign up sheet!
