That is the new motto of the AVMA GRD Fellowship program this year. For those of you who do not know much about the Fellowship program, it is an opportunity to look beyond clinical practice and gain more understanding of public policy and regulatory science.
AVMA Fellows serve a year in Washington, D.C., as scientific advisors to Members of Congress or the Executive Branch helping to shape and influence key legislation that affects animal health and welfare along with the safety of our nation. Every veterinarian possesses the skills needed to make a difference – from recent veterinary school graduates to veterinarians with years of experience. The Fellowship is an unparalleled opportunity to shape public policy while enhancing your knowledge of the political process.
The 2013 AVMA Fellowship Program, in conjunction with the American Association for the Advancement of Science Fellowship Program, will run from the last week in August 2012 until August 2013.
Applications are due by February 10, 2012. For more information, visit www.avma.org/fellowship. Make a difference. Apply now!
