Students now enter their clinical â€“ and final year. Photos available for participants
Veterinary students celebrated the completion of their third year of classroom learning at the "White Coat Ceremony," a formal ceremony signifying their entry in to the clinical portion of the DVM program, during which they received their white lab coats. The 2010 event was held at the Columbus Athenaeum, on March 27.
The Ohio State University Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association (SCAVMA) raised money last year to purchase 250 Josh Kits for children facing pre-admission testing at Nationwide Children's Hospital. In addition to making a scary experience a little brighter for those kids, they were awarded first place at last month's SAVMA Symposium. They were recognized for raising more money than any other SCAVMA chapter in the country for the first time since the competition began. Students in SCAVMA hosted monthly bake sales and other fundraising events throughout the year.
