Veterinary Alumni Association
Utah State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine is the first and only veterinary college in Utah. The College of Veterinary Medicine is part of the Washington-Idaho-Montana-Utah (WIMU) Regional Program in Veterinary Medicine. Recently, the College of Agriculture and Applied Sciences formed the Utah State University Veterinary Medicine Alumni Association (USU-VMAA). The USU-VMAA seeks to give back to USU alumni through a variety of ways:
- Promote education and opportunities for academic research to students and professionals within the field of veterinary science
- Provide Continuing Education credit opportunities for members
- Mentor and support students in the College of Veterinary Medicine with guest lectures and externship opportunities
- Network and collaborate with veterinary medicine professionals in Utah and surrounding states
The USU-VMAA strives for coordination of training and mentoring of students and veterinarians; mutually beneficial relationships among students, professionals, and USU faculty and staff; and a strong foundation of excellence in leadership, academics, and veterinary service in the state of Utah. To qualify for membership, a person must have attended at least one semester as either a pre-vet student or veterinary medicine student, worked as an instructor, or worked in the field of veterinary medicine.
