October dates set for 2016 AVMA Economic Summit

Oct. 24-25, 2016 - Save the Date for the AVMA Economic SummitIf you’re interested in the economic future of the veterinary profession—and in gathering information and tools to help you operate your business more successfully—set aside the dates October 24-25 to attend this year’s AVMA Economic Summit.

Our economics team convenes the summit every year to help practice owners and other business-focused veterinarians understand the veterinary economic markets and get tools to operate in business successfully. This year’s meeting will be held Oct. 24-25 outside Chicago, in Schaumburg, Illinois.

Understanding veterinary markets can help you operate your business more efficiently, effectively and profitably. Economic Summit attendees will explore three separate but related markets:

  • Market for veterinary education (veterinary students)
  • Market for veterinarians (employment of veterinarians among various types of employers)
  • Market for veterinary services (demand for services by animal owners)

Who should attend?

  • Business leaders who want the latest data on compensation, employment/unemployment, supply and demand for veterinarians, and price and income elasticities for veterinary services
  • Practice owners, associates and managers interested in learning how veterinary markets influence everyday business decisions
  • Academic leaders interested in learning about economic trends in the veterinary education market
  • Anyone who wants a greater understanding of the markets for veterinary education, veterinarians, and veterinary services

The agenda for this year’s summit is not yet final, but you can view the 2015 agenda and watch the video shown below to see the caliber of speakers and topics covered.  Save the date, and plan to join us in October!

  1. I was wondering if i could just come to the Tuesday Oct 25th meetings? And how many CE hours is it?

    • Dr. Friedman,
      There aren’t any veterinary CE hours awarded with the economic summit. Registrants can attend as much – or as little – of the summit as they’d like, but we don’t have one-day registration. You would end up registering for the full summit but attending only that day if that’s what you choose to do.
