What is MOAAR?  

MOAAR is a student focused symposium held every other year at Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine (PVM) designed to give veterinary professionals and students from the Midwest the opportunity to learn about exotic species and develop a unique skill set on reptilian, amphibian, and aquatic medicine. With two concurrent tracks (Reptilian/Amphibian Track and Aquatic Track) participants can choose from a broad range of lectures and wet labs on these topics.

MOAAR is the sister symposium to Medicine of Mammalian and Avian Species (MAAS) also held biennially at PVM (interchangeably with MOAAR). On 2017, first time the symposium was held, MOAAR had an incredible attendance exceeding 140 participants that included both DVM students and current DVMs.
