SAVMA Practice Connect

Purdue Veterinary Medicine values the relationships it has with practices, and students value the access to real-world experiences and employment opportunities.

To best support both practices and students, we offer SAVMA Practice Connect. This program allows DVM and Veterinary Nursing students to gain valuable exposure to practices that offer a variety of experiences.

SAVMA Practice Connect is a student-run program composed of both DVM and Veterinary Nursing students.
