New Members WANTED!

Do you love travelling abroad and learning about different cultures? Do you enjoy meeting new people? Are you interested in learning about different topics of veterinary medicine apart from the lectures in Bern? Then IVSA might be the right thing for you!


A few years ago, the current IVSA Bern-team brought our member organisation back to life. We have been inactive for many years and only recently and after a lot of work we got our status as an active MO back. To continue the work of IVSA, we are constantly looking for new members. We welcome any students from 1st to 5th year. So, what are you waiting for? Apply now for the new term (2018/2019)!

What we are looking for:

  • IVSA Bern is looking for members that participate actively and - if wanted - take over an official position - don't worry, it's not as scary as it sounds! 
  • What you need to do depends on your position - the treasurer manages our finances, the EO organises group exchange for foreign students or communicates with oder EOs in order to place students from Bern abroad, and so on.

What do you get from it?

  • No money - as an active IVSA member, you are not paid, but it is totally worth it.
  • Opportunities to travel around the world meeting other vet students from almost every country and, through this, establish a network of international contacts.
  • Opportunities to go abroad for internships or be part / organise a group exchange, something you will remember for a long time
  • Insight in many different methods of teaching and practising veterinary medicine
  • Something to write on your CV - many fully-grown veterinarians do remember IVSA when it used to be active earlier on. Who knows, it might me the little extra that makes you getting a job?

What do you need?

  • Good english skills - it is the communication language of IVSA
  • Motivation to invest time - yes, in order to keep it running, you will have to invest some time in answering mails, reading the monthly bulletins and maybe also some weeks of your holiday joining a congress or symposium - but it will be worth it, we promise!

Looking for EAEVE evaluators

The EAEVE is the official accrediation authority for veterinary education establishments within Europe. It evaluates vet schools in Europe and acknowledges them officially if they reach a certain standard.

For this project, EAEVE is looking for students who visit the schools, talk to the staff and students in order to get a deeper insight in the specific vet school. In return, the student has all travel expenses covered.
