International Veterinary Students' Association Slovakia

The International Veterinary Students’ Association (IVSA) is a non-profit organization run by volunteer veterinary students that was founded in 1953.

The mission of IVSA is “To benefit the animals and people of the world by harnessing the potential and dedication of veterinary students to promote the international application of veterinary skills, education and knowledge.” IVSA helps to expand the worldwide collaboration of over thirty thousand students, enriching their student experience and improving their skills as future veterinarians. The way in which this is achieved is by arranging annual meetings (congresses and symposia), facilitating exchanges between our members and many projects and educational opportunities focusing on animal welfare, one health, education, soft skills and wellness.

IVSA Slovakia allows students of UVMP in Košice to acquire professional experience abroad, organizes group exchanges with foreign veterinary universities, informs about international events in other countries, provides participation of UVMP students at student congresses and symposia, and is involved in organization of social and sporting events at UVMP campus.
