From recent veterinary school graduates to veterinarians with years of experience, every veterinarian possesses the skills needed to make a difference. The AVMA Fellowship Program is an unparalleled opportunity to shape public policy while enhancing your knowledge of the political process.

The program offers veterinarians a unique opportunity to spend a year in Washington, D.C., working on Capitol Hill as a scientific resource to members of Congress and their staff. Fellows play pivotal roles in shaping and influencing key legislation that affects the veterinary profession, the safety of our food supply, and the health and welfare of animals.
