AVC is pleased to host the 27th annual Students of the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (SCVMA) symposium, from January 10-12, 2013. Symposium chair Jessica Rock (AVC Class of 2015) is looking forward to welcoming veterinary students from across Canada to the event. Appropriately named Symposium by the Sea, the conference will include a wide variety of educational presentations and labs, some of which will focus on marine animals and coastal environments. Participants will also have lots of tours and fun activities to choose from. Well-known P.E.I. entertainer Patrick Ledwell will be the guest speaker at the closing banquet, which will have a traditional Maritime kitchen party theme. AVC last hosted the SCVMA Symposium in 2003.
