Student American Veterinary Medicine Association (SAVMA)

RVC SAVMA is a society dedicated to fostering community and collaboration among American, British, and other international students. Our chapter hosts multiple events throughout the year including wet labs, seminars, and well-being get-togethers throughout the year. Our members can also apply for grants to fund external costs that are incurred due to AHEMS and EMS throughout their time at the RVC as well as conference travel. As a member, you also have access to all the resources and opportunities provided by National SAVMA, can sign up for professional liability insurance, and travel to conferences such as SAVMA Symposium and the AVMA Convention. We may have America in our name but we are here for all students!
