The 2020 Penn State North Eastern Pre-Veterinary Symposium is a day long event on Saturday, March 21 2020 from 8 AM - 5 PM for students interested in a career in veterinary medicine. This year we are expanding our Pre-Veterinary Symposium to allow more diverse options of lecture and lab topics that are friendly to both high school and undergraduate students. We will also be changing the schedule from previous years to give more options of labs and lectures. Lecture topics will include neurology, internal medicine, wildlife, small and exotic animal medicine, herd health management and government practice. The labs offered include Calving Sense, Wildlife Darting, Suturing, Small Animal First Aid and Pet CPR. There will also be Penn State Pre-Veterinary Student and Experienced Veterinarian panels running during the day.

Lunch and event t-shirts will be provided to attendees (this is only guaranteed if the check is postmarked by the date stated below). With that being said, there will be a cost affiliated with attending to help cover those costs along with needed materials for labs and transportation to labs. However, we are not able to provide hotel rooms or transportation to Penn State or meals besides lunch on Saturday. That is the responsibility of all attendees. 

We will be using eventbrite for this year's registration. Registration will open on January 17th, 2020 at 5:00 PM (eastern time) and be capped around 120-150 people so we suggest registering as soon as you can to secure your spot and get the lecture and lab options you want. The cost of the 2020 Penn State North Eastern Pre-Veterinary Symposium will be $35. We are only able to accept cash or check - no online payments will be permitted.  All checks should be postmarked by March 6th, 2020 in order for your registration to be complete. All attendees will receive an email once their checks have been received. Please make checks payable to Penn State Pre-Vet Club. The address to send the checks to is as follows:

Penn State Pre-Vet Club c/o Department of Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences
