SCACVP - Student Chapter of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists
The KSU Chapter of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists (SCACVP) is an organization with the goal of providing veterinary medical students the opportunity to gain interest and knowledge in the field of veterinary pathology and to inform students of training and career opportunities in veterinary pathology.
The SCACVP is a recent addition to the list of student organizations in the college of veterinary medicine and is one of only a few other student veterinary pathology organizations in the nation.
Chapter meetings highlight several areas of veterinary pathology with guest lecturers and wet-labs that demonstrate various diagnostic techniques, introduce students to clinical and anatomical pathology cases, and help to exemplify the learning of disease processes. Students may also attend weekly Necropsy and Oncology rounds.
Membership in the organization is $5 per semester, which allows members to attend wet-labs, the national ACVP conference, have access to on-line veterinary pathology journals, and to hold officer positions. Current officer positions include President, Vice-President and Secretary/Treasurer.
Anatomic and clinical pathology residents and graduate students serve as Chapter mentors. Two faculty members, both diplomats of the ACVP, serve as advisors for the organization.
Students from all backgrounds and training levels with an interest in learning more about the field of Pathology are invited to attend chapter meetings.
