The VMGSA (Veterinary Medicine Graduate Students' Association) is a student-run, not-for-profit organization whose memberships consist of graduate students with advisors in the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.

The VMGSA's primary goal is to promote communication between graduate students and the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine administrators. By representing veterinary medicine graduate students on Faculty and University of Calgary committees, the VMGSA is able to ensure that the interests and collective voice of the veterinary medicine graduate students are heard.

As well, the VMGSA works to stimulate social, intellectual and political contact among graduate students by organizing and supporting social and academic events throughout the year.
