University of Alaska Fairbanks Pre-Veterinary Club

Club logoWelcome to the UAF Pre-Vet Club’s webpage. It is the goal of the Pre-Vet Club to connect its members with opportunities related to the diverse field of veterinary medicine and to help students prepare themselves for furthering their education towards the pursuit of a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine degree. We are here to be your resource for all things pre-vet related! 

Our club brings members together to meet others with similar interest and gain valuable information. It is a great way to build your veterinary school application and gain veterinary, animal and community service experience. Our club meets at least once every other week, but we may meet more than that if we have an event planned.
