Tufts University Summer Program for Aspiring Veterinarians

Applications for the 2019 Adventures in Veterinary Medicine (AVM) program at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University are now open.

AVM is an exciting and intensive program where participants can explore the wide variety of careers available within veterinary medicine and discover first-hand what it is like to attend veterinary school. 

For students who are trying to determine whether veterinary medicine is the right career path, AVM is a great way to gain a deeper understanding of the profession. The program is also helpful for students who have already decided on a future in veterinary medicine, as it allows them to experience life as a veterinary student and explore opportunities within the field. Many past AVM participants have successfully gained admission to veterinary school both at Tufts and other schools.

During the week-long session, participants will

  • investigate the different specialty fields
  • spend time behind the scenes in hospitals shadowing veterinary students
  • gain hands-on experience working with teaching animals
  • learn about Tufts admission and financial aid process

Turfts offer two sessions for college students as well as a session for adult, non-traditional students.

  • Adult Session 2: April 29–May 3
  • College Session 3: June 3–7
  • College Session 4: June 10–14
