Veterinary students are eligible to become members of MVMA. The annual dues for a student membership are $10.00. Students receive all Full Member benefits, however, they do not have association voting rights and cannot hold office. MVMA offers discounted registration for students who wish to attend our CE Conferences and other programs. Starting in their second year, TUSVM students (as well as others with a New England connection) may request assignment to a mentor. Student members are invited to participate in committee activities. MVMA also offers an externship at our office, allowing veterinary students to explore public policy and other non-medical issues. Upon graduation, a student member automatically becomes a New Graduate Member (state licensure is required to become a New Graduate member). Dues are waived until the second January after graduation, so you can receive up to a year and a half of membership free!
In addition, the MVMA has just announced that it will sponsor one student or recent graduate (within five years of graduation) to participate in the Project Samana or Mazunte international program.
