Veterinary Students

Get a jumpstart on your studies and career.

For Veterinary Students, By Veterinarians.

Get the information, tools, and guidance from colleagues you need to help you excel in your studies, experience the real world of veterinary medicine, learn about your chosen profession, and blossom in your career.


VIN and your VIN member colleagues are dedicated to providing you with the resources you need to effectively and confidently face the every day challenges of a veterinary student.

VIN's searchable database contains literature abstracts from thousands of veterinary & human medical journals. Full-text proceedings from dozens of veterinary conferences keep you on the cutting edge of veterinary medicine. VIN can help you spend less time searching and more time learning.

You are the next generation of veterinarians — there’s no need to wait until you graduate to learn from your colleagues on the VIN Message Boards. There are also message boards devoted to discussing special issues facing students — student debt and repayment, what to expect in clinical rotations, how others prepare for licensing exams, how to find the right externship, and more.

Membership for veterinary students, interns, residents and faculty of veterinary schools is free.


Everyone at VIN feels strongly about giving back to the profession. Your VIN Membership is free while you are a student. As a new member, you’ll be connected with a “VIN Buddy” who will be there to answer any questions you have while navigating VIN and your new profession.
