Student Veterinary Response Team (SVRT)
Welcome to the web page for the Texas A&M Student Veterinary
Response Team! Our organization was established with the purpose of
bringing together people with an interest in emergency response in
veterinary medicine and promoting the vital role of veterinarians
in protecting animal health, public health and our food supply.
1. To promote the importance of emergency response in veterinary
2. To provide the veterinary students with educational
opportunities in relation to emergency response, by encouraging
guest speakers for SVRT meetings
3. To create and maintain an affiliation between SVRT members
and members of the Veterinary Emergency Team (VET) and similar
emergency response organizations nationwide
Why you should join SVRT:
Veterinarians play a vital role in the responses to animal
diease outbreaks, natural disasters and manmade disasters. Whether
you are a local veterinarian or member of an emergency response
team, it's important to understand your role in the community when
a disaster occurs. Through education, planning and communication,
we as individuals can take steps toward minimizing the impact of a
disaster on both the animals and the people in our community.
Dues are $20 per year.
