The Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine offers a number of outreach activities for the general public, prospective students, pet owners, and aspiring young veterinarians.
Tours are provided by appointment only to the general public. To arrange a tour, please call us at 662-325-1131.
We also offer an annual Open House event each year, typically the first or second weekend in April, which provides an opportunity for individuals, families, and school groups/organizations to participate in hands-on learning activities related to the field of veterinary medicine. Our annual Open House is free and open to the public and typically offers a variety of activities for enjoyment by all ages. Some of our most popular Open House activities include our petting zoo, painted horse exhibit, animal show, and tours of our Animal Health Center.
The CVM offers a Summer Veterinary Camp each year for aspiring young veterinarians. A day camp and an overnight camp session are offered, typically falling over the first two weeks of June each year. The day camp session is open to 13-17 year olds and the overnight camp session is open to 15-17 year olds. More details can be found online here.
VetAspire is another outreach opportunity for aspiring young veterinarians who come from traditionally underserved populations. This monthly opportunity allows students to participate in clinics, lectures, and hands-on activities. The goal of the program is to expose students to the field of veterinary medicine in hopes that they will choose it as a career path. Students will also get to see the real-world impact of math, science, and communications training.
Our new monthly Pegasus spot on MSTV is now airing on the university channel (MSTV) and is available to MaxxSouth Broadband subscribers in the Golden Triangle area and those with C Spire Fiber TV throughout the state of Mississippi. Catch the latest episose here.
