Ever dream of making a difference on a national level? Or how about putting your veterinary expertise to work with our nation’s highest decision makers? The American Veterinary Medical Association’s Fellowship Program provides a unique opportunity for you to do just that.
AVMA Fellows serve for one year in Washington, D.C., as scientific advisors to members of Congress. Fellows play a pivotal role in shaping and influencing key legislation that affects the veterinary profession, and the health and safety of our nation.
Every veterinarian possesses the skills needed to make a difference – from recent veterinary school graduates to veterinarians with years of experience. The Fellowship is an unparalleled opportunity to shape public policy while enhancing your knowledge of the political process.
The 2011-2012 AVMA Fellowship Program, in conjunction with the American Association for the Advancement of Science Fellowship Program, will run from the last week in August 2011 until August 2012. Applications are due by February 11, 2011. More information can be found online or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
