IVSA is a non-profit organization run by volunteer veterinary students that was founded in 1953. It is a global organization that involves thousands of veterinary students from over 60 different countries from all around the world.
The mission of IVSA is “To benefit the animals and people of the world by harnessing the potential and dedication of veterinary students to promote the international application of veterinary skills, education and knowledge.”
The way in which this is achieved is by arranging annual meetings (congresses and symposia) and facilitating exchanges between the different member organizations.
IVSA is also very active in arranging various projects and educational opportunities on an international platform with the main focus being on animal welfare, one health, veterinary education, soft skills and general wellness of the veterinary students in our profession.
IVSA will assist us by collecting books and equipment from various countries and veterinary organisations around the world. We aim to promote them to the best of our ability during our trip next year to help them in building relationships with other Veterinary faculties.
