Summary about club:

A group to promote the education and involvement of veterinary students in all aspects of emergency and critical care medicine. When you join the Massey SVECCS club you are also joining an international community, with many overseas universities having SVECCS clubs of their own. We aim to organise many interesting talks throughout the year which will be presented by Massey’s very own A class lecturers plus some other special guests. Our conference allows the hands on application of much of the theory learnt with wetlab activities. This year we truly want all years to be involved by providing information aimed at all types of vet students; old or young, largies or smallies lovers.

Annual events and talks:

Conference: date TBC

March 2nd: Cristin Dwyer + 2015 membership sign up!!!

We have also organised exciting talks from Stuart Gordon, Thomas Odom and Kathy Parton. For dates watch out for fliers on the notice boards around the vet tower and listen out for class announcements.


How to join:

Sign up is usually at the first meeting but that doesn’t mean you can’t sign up after that. If you miss the first meeting come along to any of the subsequent meetings and come and see any of the committee members.
