The UGA Student Chapter of the WDA has four objectives :

  • To provide students with opportunities for involvement in wildlife medicine, wildlife disease research and conservation medicine. 
  • To facilitate an understanding of the complex relationship among ecosystem health, animal health and human health and how this relates to agriculture, public health and the different aspects of veterinary medicine. 
  • To introduce the chance to examine the wildlife-livestock interface and its importance in food animal medicine both locally and internationally. 
  • To take advantage of the WDA’s extensive student networks, conference and workshop opportunities, faculty mentorship, and externship database.

Our Membership comes from many different departments around campus!
