The AAVMC has been providing sound and reliable empirical data regarding different dimensions of academic veterinary medicine since its founding in 1966. This information helps our member institutions, applicants, students, the media, business, government and other organizations in veterinary medicine better understand issues and trends in academic veterinary medicine. Today, the AAVMC annually produces a variety of data concerning faculty, staff, students, finances, academic programs, placement rates and other topics, much of which is made available to the public. Please don’t hesitate to contact AAVMC communications staff if you need assistance. We want to do everything we can to help you obtain the information and insight you are seeking.
