IVSA strives to raise the overall standard of veterinary education worldwide by bringing veterinary students together to exchange ideas, knowledge and culture. Animal welfare is an integral part of the IVSAs work and is fundamental to veterinary medicine, however it does not always play a prominent role within the veterinary student curriculum globally. IVSA therefore decided to create an Animal Welfare Conference to further educate veterinary students on animal welfare through lectures, practicals and workshops, knowledge which they can then carry with them throughout their veterinary careers. Through organising events such as the IVSA Animal Welfare Conference, we hope that more students will become inspired to become future leaders in animal welfare in their countries, as well as internationally and further understand the importance of veterinarians being aware of animal welfare issues.
