Beginning in September, VetPAC hosts a fortnightly series of seminars that are open to all pre-veterinary students at NCSU. Throughout the fall semester, the seminar series lasts for 4-6 lectures that explore a themed list of current topics relevant to the field of veterinary medicine. Each series is based on a theme designed to encourage career exploration and introduce pre-veterinary students to the vast array of opportunities available within the field. Previous seminar themes have included topics such as:
- (Fall 2020) “Where do Veterinarians Work?” which highlighted niche veterinary careers including veterinary forensics, military medicine, veterinary diagnostics and mobile practice.
- (Fall 2019) “How-to:” a series that included instructions for interviewing at clinics, managing academic life, and finding research experiences both on and off campus.
Fall 2021 Seminar Series theme: “Evolving and Thriving within Veterinary Medicine”
Join VetPAC this fall to learn more about how current veterinary and allied veterinary professionals have grown in their careers to pursue their career interests through non-linear career paths. All seminars will be held via Zoom from 5:30 – 6:30pm on Thursdays. Links to each virtual Fall Seminar will be sent via the VetPAC Listserv. Students can register for the VetPAC Listserv here.
Anyone interested in veterinary medicine is welcome and encouraged to attend.
