SVM Alumni Awards

Award Categories

There are three award categories, allowing opportunities for both Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and graduate degree programs alumni, as well as recent graduates, to be recognized.

This is an accordion element with a series of buttons that open and close related content panels.

Young Alumni Award

Eligibility: Graduates of the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine DVM program within the past 10 years.

The same basic criteria of professional achievement, community and support of the UW School of Veterinary Medicine apply. However, since these candidates have had less time outside of the program this award allows for recognition of those newer graduates who have contributed in these areas.
