Welcome to the University of Guelph Future Vets Club!

The Future Vets Club (FVC) is a non-profit CSA approved club run out of the University of Guelph. Our main goal is to provide support to undergraduate students intending to apply to veterinary colleges, both within Ontario and internationally. Our aim is to provide as much information as possible by organizing and hosting informative seminars and events which feature speakers from animal-related fields and by providing as much information as we can on work/volunteer opportunities as well as what schools offer a degree in veterinary medicine.

We hope to provide our members with a broad, first-hand glimpse of the veterinary profession as well as the various fields within veterinary medicine. To get an idea of our typical events and meetings, feel free to browse through our Events section for previous events. The events that the club hosts provide valuable information and also allow undergraduate students the opportunity to network with potential volunteer supervisors and meet students who share similar interests and a passion for animals.

This is, of course, only an overview of what the club is about. For more information about the Future Vets Club, veterinary medicine, and opportunities available to undergraduate students, please look through the website. If you have any further questions, please contact the FVC and we will do our best to answer your questions.
