Working Group on Alumni

Working Group on Alumni

The IVSA Alumni network is just that: a network of IVSA members who have since graduated.

Many say that their IVSA years were some of the best of their life, but the journey doesn't have to end when you graduate! The IVSA Alumni network was founded in 2015 and is here to help support young vets on their onward journey by bringing and keeping the community together. Our Alumni network is also of great value to the Association giving back to the community that has cultured so many memories and further education by aiding current students.

Benefit the animals and people of the world by promoting the sharing of skills, knowledge and education among our network of graduated veterinarians

Provide a platform to bring and keep graduated IVSA members together

Support current IVSA student members by promoting IVSA, contributing to their education, providing financial support and mentorship
