Veterinarians Encouraging and Teaching


Veterinarians Encouraging and Teaching


Veterinarians Encouraging and Teaching (V.E.T.) was formed in 2018 as a non-profit organization focused on enhancing relationships between veterinary students, private practice, and academia through social events, clinical skills labs, and mentorship avenues. A primary objective is to furnish students with networking opportunities with local and out-of-state veterinarians for externship and internship opportunities via the Pathways to Success Career Symposium and expanded summer programs.

What do participants have to say?

I really enjoyed each wet lab that was put together. They were not only well organized and informative, but a lot of fun. It was great to speak one on one with real practitioners, while learning hands on skills we will use in the future.

It was great getting to work with experienced equine veterinarians. I really appreciated the time they spent teaching us. It showed that they really care about producing a future competent veterinarian.

The wet lab that I attended went really well and I am glad that I got the opportunity to work with experienced vets from all over Oklahoma. I look forward to attending more labs like these in the future.

The VET program has exceeded my expectations in providing quality hands on experiences to CVHS students with horses in husbandry, physical examination skills and practice management. These experiences under the guidance of talented practitioners, will increase our student’s readiness to enter practice and to have an immediate impact to the equine industry after graduation.

I am so thankful that veterinarians from around Oklahoma want to help in the success of future veterinarians by creating opportunities for students to get hands on experience and build connections.
