Symposium Lottery

The SAVMA Symposium lottery is run each year to allow for every student registrant to have a fair and equal opportunity to register for popular wet labs or day trips no matter what time zone they live in.

During the lottery registration period, every attendee has the option to rank up to 2 wet lab(s) and/or day trip(s) they wish to participate in. When lottery registration closes, individuals are randomly selected and assigned to either ONE wet lab OR ONE day trip based on their chosen ranked selection(s) and open spot availability for the event.

Participation in the lottery does not guarantee a spot in a wet lab or day trip. If you have been placed in either your 1st or 2nd choice of wet labs and/or day trips your online itinerary will be updated, your credit card will be charged and you will be notified via email. If you were unable to be placed in a wet lab or day trip, you will be notified as well. There are no refunds, exchanges or changes once you are placed in your lottery selection. Please make sure you only rank wet labs and/or day trips that you wish to participate in the most. 


Regular registration

Starting on December 4th, 2023 at 9am Central, students who did not previously register are able to do so after this time. Students who participated in the lottery, also have the opportunity to register for any additional wet lab or day trips they wish to add to their itinerary starting after this date. To do so, the student would need to find their registration confirmation email to access the link to the Attendee Service Center where you can edit your registration and add any additional wet labs or day trips.

During Regular Registration any veterinary student who is a current SAVMA member can register for the event plus any remaining wet labs or day trips that have openings.
