Join us in the City of Brotherly Love to experience first-hand what it takes to become a veterinarian.

Important Note: Penn Vet has informed us that they will not be able to host the NSLC on campus this summer. The lab spaces typically held for the NSLC and professors who have participated in the program will be unavailable for the summer of 2023. Therefore, we have cancelled this year’s programs taking place at Penn Vet.
