The Open House will operate in two phases, one for schools, from 9am-3pm,  and for the general public, from 1pm-6pm. This event aims to sensitise secondary school students to the veterinary profession as a possible career choice, and to make the general public aware of the many facets of veterinary medicine and the roles veterinarians play in society.

The One Health Concept will also be showcased, which demonstrates how the veterinary and medical professions, and the environmental/ecological fields are all inter-related.

The SVM provides a number of exciting and interactive activities over the two days:

- Guided tours

-veterinary exhibits

- demonstrations
