The veterinary profession abounds with people who deserve recognition for their contributions to both animal and human health. These esteemed members of our community have dedicated themselves and their careers to a diverse range of disciplines – everything from agriculture, public health, humane education, animal welfare, clinical practice and research, to government activities and professional education.
We wish to recognize these colleagues and the valuable work they do. That’s why the American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Veterinary Medical Foundation are pleased to offer the AVMA Excellence in Veterinary Medicine Awards to individuals who have advanced the science and art of veterinary medicine, and who have shown exemplary concern for, and commitment to, the welfare and humane treatment of animals. We invite you to nominate today the person whom you believe exemplifies the spirit of the AVMA awards.
