The APVMA Symposium is an event designed to promote pre-veterinary interest in professional veterinary medicine. The Symposium provides an opportunity for pre-veterinary students to meet and interact with veterinarians through labs and lectures covering a number of different fields and career paths. The Symposium is held each year at different colleges of veterinary medicine within the United States, and the UFCVM is looking forward to the opportunity of using its state-of-the art hosptials and teaching spaces to support this initiative.
