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.
