IVSA in the World
Member Organizations of IVSA are located all over the globe, each composed of extremely active members, sharing ideas and cultures throughout the year. The differences in cultures and various curriculums make all IVSA experiences rich and unique, but we all share the same passion for IVSA.
The IVSA is an apolitical, associative student organization. As such, Member Organizations are recognized by a simple majority vote at IVSA General Assemblies. Member Organizations are thus recognized independent of the de facto or de jure status of the territory in which they are based.
At the moment our committee exist of 7 members:
- President: Dominique Flipse
- senior EO: Sigrid Smets
- junior EO: Carine van Acker
- secretary: Victoria Depoorter
- treasurer: Charlotte Waegeman
- event manager: Joy Cleymans
- sponsoring: Victoria Tuellman
We are still a growing chapter so we haven’t done many local activities.
Each year, we do 2 exchanges:
- 1 inside of Europe
- 1 outside of Europe
All students of our faculty can join from second year. We offer a mix of cultural events (Ghent,Brussels,Bruges,…) , veterinary development (at our university but also outside the clinic) , fun (cantus (which is a typical singing-drinking event), Ghent festival during summer,…) The amount of people is 10-15 each time so the group is not too big but still give enough people the opportunity to join an adventure.
Previous exchanges: 2015-2016: Poland (Krakow); Grenada 2014-2015: Norway; South Africa 2013-2014: Austria; Malaysia (UMP) => exchange with the 3 countries together: winner of the price of best exchange 2012-2013: Czech Republic 2011-2012: Greece
Most important: applications have to reach us at least 6 months in advance! It is possible to come for 2-6 weeks. A bit of clinical experience is required before we can accept someone. Possibilities:
- Small animal department @ Ghent university
- Horses @ EquiTom (good resume is required)
- ruminants is not possible at our university for exchanges. We are looking for private vets.
Since 1996 our campus is situated entirely at Merelbeke, a town next to Ghent. Before it was in Ghent itself but it became too small and there were no possibilities to expand. The new campus has a remarkable uniform structure, in which all functional types of buildings, i.e. offices, laboratories, clinics, lecture rooms, administrative units and stables correspond with each other and it is still expanding. Both our research departments and our clinical departments are very known for their excellent work and knowledge and we have the newest equipment necessary for specialised work. We even have an own restaurant for students, professors, assistants,… At the moment we are with 1561 students. We all have 6 years of education (3 years of Bachelor and 3 years of Master) before we can call ourselves veterinarians. The first years is all about the basics like how does a living animal works and how does it look like from the inside. As the years pass, we are dropped in the clinics were we help out colleagues from further years to know how the clinics work so we know how to do the right things that we need in our final year where we are alone with the patients under supervision of the interns and specialists.
