SCVECCS - Student Chapter of the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society


SVECCS Website 

The KSU SCVECCS was started in the spring 1995 by a group of interested students eager to enhance their education in the field of emergency medicine and critical care. The purpose of this organization is the advancement of knowledge and the promotion of the specialties of emergency medicine and critical care, both for the awareness of the members, non-members and the community. To this end this KSU SCVECCS will function in the following capacities:

  1. Dissemination of information about the functioning of the VECCS and SCVECCS to its membership, particularly in regards to policy changes, activities, symposiums, etc.

  2. Dissemination of information for the purposes of informing the SVECCS of the activities therein, and for the members to garner information and enthusiasm from the activities of others.

  3. Encourage the inclusion of emergency medicine and critical care topics in the curriculums and finances of the SCVECCS.

  4. To make available to the members, a comprehensive list of those veterinary clinics across the United States specializing in emergency medicine and/or critical care and whom are willing to make preceptorships available to the veterinary students.

  5. Encourage the pursuit of internships or residencies in emergency medicine and critical care by the veterinary students.

  6. To encourage veterinary students to pursue activities related to emergency medicine and critical care, such that students are able to gain exposure and experience in this important topic prior to graduation.

We will be holding meetings once a month with dates and times to be announced. Hands-on wet labs and/or demonstrations will be scheduled throughout the year and will include basic techniques seen and used in emergency medicine. Each class will have one representative who will be responsible for dissemination of the organization's activities. We welcome students with all species interests as well as emergency medicine and encourage those with diverse or special backgrounds to share their experiences. We look forward to including you into membership.
