AVMA members who have graduated in the past 5 years are invited to join the Early Career Online Community, a place for recent grads to connect with one another and receive support with issues faced during the transition from veterinary student to working veterinarian.
- Voice concerns and receive feedback from other veterinarians that are in your shoes. Discuss topics like juggling family, friends, bills and loans, and finding a niche in veterinary medicine.
- Learn about and influence AVMA policies, services, and programs that affect you.
- Learn about (or suggest ideas!) for educational opportunities and options for getting more involved in organized veterinary medicine.
Recent grads face unique challenges and the AVMA is committed to supporting new veterinarians in and away from the practice. In the coming months, the AVMA will be forming a new committee, called the Early Career Development Committee, geared towards addressing recent graduate issues, including those identified by the Online Community.
Join the Early Career Online Community by completing this brief participation form no later than June 15, 2012, in time for our launch of the new group. You will receive an email confirmation with information about how to join the group online. We look forward to getting your fresh perspective!
