Over the course of its 123-year history, the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine has produced more than 6,400 veterinarians and more than 500 specialists and researchers. Auburn is the seventh oldest college of veterinary medicine in North America and was the first in the southeastern United States. Alumni live throughout all 50 states and many nations.

Auburn was a part of the first regional education program in the U.S., offering veterinary education programs to neighboring states, and is why Auburn veterinarians are prevalent throughout the Southeast. In 1949, Dr. Redding S. Sugg, the third dean of the College, helped found the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB), and Auburn is proud of its ongoing 64-year partnership in veterinary education with the Commonwealth of Kentucky through the SREB agreement.

The mission of the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine is to prepare individuals for careers of excellence in veterinary medicine, including private and public practice, industrial medicine, academics, and research. The College provides programs of instruction, research, outreach, and service that are in the best interests of the citizens of the state of Alabama, the region, the nation, and the world.

Veterinary Camp tuition will be $800 per person and covers all instruction, housing, meals, transportation fees, and recreational activities.

Thank you for your interest in Vet Camp at Auburn University. The application period has closed. Applications for 2018 Vet Camp will open on December 1st. Applicants who applied for the 2017 summer will be notified on/or after March 1st 2017.
