NAVMEC Mission, Goals and Legacy


NAVMEC mission:
  1. Attract and retain the very best students
  2. Motivate and inspire outstanding educators
  3. Create value for financial investors in the education system
  4. Excite and engage all stakeholders, including employers of veterinarians
  5. Empower veterinarians to contribute to societal needs from a global perspective
Strategic goals identified as part of the NAVMEC process included:
  1. Graduate career ready veterinarians who are proficient in and have the confidence to use an agreed-upon set of core competencies.
  2. Ensure that admissions, curricula, accreditation, and testing/licensure are competency driven.
  3. Share resources to ensure veterinary medical education is of the highest quality and maximally cost-effective.
  4. Promote an economically viable education system for both DVM’s and veterinary students.
  5. Stimulate a profession-wide focus on innovation, flexibility and action.
The NAVMEC board no longer exists; the program has completed its work and has been sunset. However, many of the specific programs and initiatives outlined in the “Roadmap” are underway in AAVMC member institutions and have been integrated within ongoing AAVMC programs.
