About Student Association of Veterinary Ethics (SAVE)
The mission of the Student Association of Veterinary Ethics (SAVE) at Tufts University is to promote thoughtful consideration of ethical issues in the field and practice of veterinary medicine. We have held small discussion groups where students can feel free to explore topics relating to welfare and ethics in a safe, judgment free environment. SAVE has also sponsored lunch talks and intimate discussion sessions with clinicians and educators dedicated to helping veterinary students navigate complex issues relating to ethics and animal welfare. Our hope is that through this club, students can gain the tools and knowledge to guide them through the ethical dilemmas they will face throughout their careers as veterinarians.
