SIRVS is a group of veterinary students who have recognized a need for veterinary services in underserved Reservation communities in Minnesota. Our mission is to train future veterinarians by serving communities in need.
Group's principal activities, events, or programs:
The main activity of SIRVS will be to organize and hold clinics to provide veterinary services, including surgery, vaccinations, deworming, and husbandry education, in Reservation communities in Minnesota.
How this group's activities benefit the University community:
The University will be represented at clinics providing much needed services that will not only improve animal health, but public health as well. In addition, students involved in clinics will gain leadership experiences which will help them excel in their studies and future careers as University of Minnesota graduates.
How this group fits into its categories:
We fit in the graduate/professional category due to the fact that our members are either veterinary students, veterinarians, or veterinary technicians. However, since there is a wide range of duties that must be carried out to hold clinics, we would be open to students with other backgrounds such as business, public health, etc.
The service category perfectly describes the goal of our group, which was created with the sole purpose of providing veterinary services to communities in need.
How to get involved with this group:
Interested students may contact any of the officers for more information; they will need to fill out a membership application which they can obtain after contacting a SIRVS officer.
