As the AVMA continues to educate and inspire aspiring, young veterinarians, we’ve added a video game to our assortment of fun, educational resources.
“AVMA Animal Hospital” allows animal lovers to test their skills diagnosing and treating animals in a virtual veterinary clinic setting. The game is available for free through Apple’s AppStore, Google Play and the AVMA’s website. Players compete with the clock as they learn about each animal’s condition, diagnose its ailments and provide treatment. By successfully diagnosing and treating each animal, players earn points and progress from “new veterinarian” to “chief veterinarian” of the hospital.
While the primary audience for the game is children in grades 4-8, AVMA Animal Hospital was developed to provide a fun experience for animal lovers of all ages. Games are a great way to learn, and we hope AVMA Animal Hospital helps educate and inspire the next generation of veterinarians.
We want to thank the many veterinarians who provided their expertise to create the animal diagnoses and treatments identified within the game, and we also want to extend our appreciation to the American Veterinary Medical Foundation, which provided generous financial support.
