Finding viable solutions to financial issues related to student debt and the cost of veterinary medical education is among the highest priorities for our profession. That’s why we’re excited to be co-sponsoring the Fix the Debt Summit, which opens Wednesday at Michigan State University.
The summit, sponsored jointly by the AVMA, Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges and Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine, will bring together some 150 individuals to tackle student debt and other financial issues that impact young veterinary professionals. Summit participants will include veterinary students and recent graduates, and representatives from veterinary medical colleges, veterinary employers, governmental agencies and veterinary associations.
Our collective goal over the three-day summit is to agree on specific strategies to address the many facets of this complex challenge.
We’ll follow up with more information after the summit’s close.
