Achieving Educational Excellence

Academic Affairs Committee

The responsibility of preparing new generations of veterinarians to care for people and animals in a rapidly changing world demands educational excellence. The AAVMC’s member institutions develop curricula that respond to changing environments and prepare students for professional success in a rapidly evolving medical discipline. The AAVMC develops leaders in academic veterinary medicine and throughout the profession.

Through groups such as the AAVMC Primary Care Veterinary Educators (PCVE), a sub-committee of the Academic Affairs Committee, the AAVMC works to ensure that veterinary students receive instruction in areas that correspond to the changing needs of modern practice environments. It leads in helping the profession provide its graduates with training in life skills such as interpersonal communication, collaboration, teamwork, and business management. It seeks to provide forums where new ideas and best practices regarding skills, knowledge and aptitudes can be developed, refined and exchanged.

The AAVMC also provides leadership in helping member institutions embrace changing technologies like e-learning, working to encourage association-wide consortia that can combine resources and leverage individual strengths for the advancement of all.
