Young Members

The EVA Young Members Group (YMG) is for veterinary students and recent graduates up to three years after graduation.

EVA takes a special interest in fostering the equine veterinary practitioners of tomorrow and the future leaders of the veterinary profession, with around 250 Young Members and a number of programs and initiatives specifically for Young Members:

  • Discounted and subsidised continuing professional development opportunities
  • Seminars, workshops and clinical sessions that are specifically suited for young equine veterinarians. The aim of these workshops and seminars is to provide hands-on opportunities for young vets to learn under the close direction of senior practitioners and demonstrators.
  • Dedicated private Facebook group to help stay in touch with other Young Members
  • Social functions and outings, including an annual Young Member dinner for those attending and helping at the Bain Fallon Memorial Lectures
  • EVA Bain Fallon Scholarships - Kindly sponsored by 4CYTE, the EVA Bain Fallon Scholarships provide four Young Members with complimentary registration and accommodation at Bain Fallon each year
  • A list of practices offering internships.
