Young Vet Network

Supporting young vets around the UK

Want to connect with other graduate vets in your local area, share your career experiences, and benefit from the knowledge and support of the wider young vet community?

That’s what the BVA Young Vet Network offers you for the first 8 years of your career. Joining one of our 35 regional Young Vet Network groups will give you the support you need to grow and thrive in your career, with opportunities ranging from clinical and non-clinical talks to social events including informal dinners and pub catch-ups.

Kindly supported by the VDS, a mutual membership organisation protecting and advising the veterinary profession for over 150 years. Founded in 1865, and run 'by vets, for vets', the VDS is proud to support the BVA Young Vet Network, understanding the stress recent graduates experience in their early years and helping them to achieve their full potential in practice.
