Recruiting High-Quality Future Professionals

Admissions and Recruitment Committee

The rigors and responsibilities of modern veterinary medicine require the best and the brightest students.

The AAVMC conducts short and long-range examinations of the profession’s applicant pool, ensuring the availability of a stream of highly qualified applicants.

The applicant pool for those aspiring to become veterinarians remains strong, in spite of highly publicized veterinary economic issues regarding salaries, workforce opportunities, tuition costs, and student debt.

The AAVMC works closely with admissions personnel at member institutions and sponsors conferences, meetings and related symposia to support admissions and recruitment. The AAVMC is developing a national recruitment strategy to help identify, inspire and recruit those students best suited for careers in veterinary medicine.

The AAVMC’s Veterinary Medical College Application Service (VMCAS) is continually upgraded to provide prospective students and member institutions with highly efficient student recruitment and applicant processing services.
