The Atlantic Veterinary College’s Dr. Tim Ogilvie AVC Vet Camp (AVC Vet Camp) offers a behind-the-scenes peek into the world of veterinary medicine—from doing physical examinations on dogs and horses to learning how to dress like a surgeon and suturing on a silicon suture pad. You will be amazed at what you will see, learn, and do!
Camp activities are planned to ensure a balance of hands-on activities, lectures, labs, and discussions. You will meet some interesting animals, and you will explore the science of animals through sessions on pathology, bacteriology, anatomy, toxicology, and more! You will visit our large- and small-animal hospitals, take a couple of field trips, find out what learning to become a veterinarian involves, and learn how to keep your pets and farm animals healthy.
