Since summer 2018, SERP was remodeled to include exciting enhancements:

  • Extends the didactic aspect of the course work which allow more exposure to the veterinary curriculum
  • Increase opportunities to reinforce veterinary theory with application
  • All within a modified schedule of five weeks.

Critical features maintained from the original model are evaluations and the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge from actual veterinary  medicine instructors.  The administration of pre and post evaluations are conducted during the didactic phase of SERP.  Instructors utilize this data to identify specific areas of development for each participant and recommend supplemental resources. SERP empowers participants with the knowledge of learning styles, metacognitive strategies, and post evaluation assessments to effectively customize an Academic Success Plan.

Student Reflections:

“ The program gave me a foundation for which I can now build on by carrying out my own concentrated research.  With the plethora of new information, work and test, also came the formation of study groups to make it through and consequently, new bonds and lifelong friendships were formed.”- Javier Richardson (pre-vet student)

“This program taught me that even with all the resources in the world at your disposal, success starts within you.”- Ebony Webber (pre-vet student)

“I learned to reach out to both my professors and classmates and speak up when I did not understand something. I learned that my vet school family is going to play a major role in getting through the veterinary curriculum.  This program is different because I got first hand experience in just how much of a family the vet school community is.” - Kayla Nel (pre-vet student)

“This program provided ways of trying to find a healthy balance to keeping ourselves sane mentally and physically strong by doing activities such as Tai Chi, golfing or other leisure activities, and introducing healthy food options” – Jasmine Bogan (Class of 2022)
