The Georgia Tech Pre-Veterinary Medical Association was founded in 2010 by Stephanie Howell and Samantha Williams for the purpose of giving the students of Georgia Tech exposure to veterinary medicine, the experience and guidance needed to apply to veterinary school, and a means of networking with other students and professionals in the field of veterinary medicine.
Throughout the year we host several events from bake sales with puppies from the Atlanta Humane Society to behind-the-scenes tours of animal rescues and hosting admissions representatives from vet schools around the country. GTPVMA members have also been involved in adoption events, vaccination clinics, and spay/neuter clinics in the area.
GTPVMA is open to any Georgia Tech student, undergraduate or graduate, regardless of major. We are a group that works together to provide support to one another to maximize all of our experiences at Tech and in the application process.
The club meets every two weeks. Meeting topics include planning and coordinating events, discussing what kind of work and internships members are doing over the summer or during the school year, general discussion about getting accepted to veterinary school (i.e. how to answer interview questions, what the application essays look like, and what kind of questions will be asked of you), and what a career in veterinary medicine would be like.
