House Mentorship Program

We are excited to announce the creation of a new mentorship program at Michigan State University’s 高校 Veterinary Medicine, and even more excited to ask you to join us in mentoring our future veterinary professionals!

As you know, doctor of veterinary medicine and veterinary technology programs are rigorous, and a support system is essential for student success. To this end, the 学院 created the House System in 2017. Our House System sorts students into four houses, and is designed to bring together faculty, staff, and especially students to build community and facilitate student wellness and success.

This year, we are weaving a mentorship component into the House System. This is where you come in! We are recruiting our valued alumni to join us on this journey to provide social and professional mentorship to our DVM and vet tech students.

Responsibilities of Mentors

As a mentor, you will help support learners using ­­your experiences, knowledge, and understanding of life in the field of veterinary medicine. Using whatever means of communication you’re comfortable with (email, phone, text, in-person) to visit with students and answer their questions. You might engage your group in a monthly Skype chat, meet during a horse show at the Pavilion, visit during an MSU football game, share interesting research or articles, or just be there when they need you.

If you are interested in learning more about the Program, or if you already know you’d like to become a mentor to our future veterinary professionals, please go to www.whxlyyy.com/mentor and fill out a short survey with your contact information.

We’d love to have you join us!


As part of the DVM admissions process, the 学院 conducts Multiple Mini Interviews (MMIs) for potential students. MMIS are a series of 6-minute interviews at 7 stations, each with its own evaluator and scenario. The scenarios address attributes we believe are important in becoming a competent and caring veterinarian like communication, maturity, and cultural competence.

Evaluators are a trained cohort of faculty, administrators, staff, and local alumni and practitioners. MMIS provide an opportunity to assess competencies, which are relevant to the 学院's DVM program and have been aligned with American Veterinary Medical Association Council on 教育 competencies.

We are looking for 学院 校友 volunteers to serve as evaluators!

联系 admiss@cvm.msu.edu for more information and to get involved! MMIS to select the Class of 2024 will run from December 2019 through February 2020.
