A Celebration of Academic Veterinary Medicine

A 50th Anniversary Planning Committee has created a year-long celebration -- from March 2015 – March 2016 -- designed to build public awareness about our colleges and schools and the profession. The story of the AAVMC will be broadly shared throughout the anniversary year, which culminates in early 2016 with the announcement of the Grand Initiative. Learn More
