Vet Ed value
AVA members are able to take advantage of extra value for their continuing professional development through member discounts on a range of valuable education opportunities.
Books and journals
AVA members can claim a 20% discount off the price of books published by Wiley.
They can also subcribe at reduced rates to leading international veterinary journals - The Veterinary Record, In Practice, Clinician's Brief, New Zealand Veterinary Journal and Vetscript. (Don't forget that 2 hours of reading can earn you 1 unstructured Vet Ed point.)
AVA members receive complimentary subscriptions to Australia's leading veterinary science journal, Australian Veterinary Journal. There are also clinical journals published by the special interest groups (SIGs) Australian Small Animal Veterinary Association, Equine Veterinarians Australia and, Australian Cattle Veterinarians, that are distributed to each SIG member. Membership of the behaviour SIG includes a complimentary subscription to Journal of Veterinary Behaviour: Clinical Applications and Research, the only peer-reviewed journal that focuses entirely on veterinary behavioural medicine (six issues a year).
Members are eligible for generous discounts for all AVA education and social events. SIG members are usually able to register at even lower cost for events organised by the SIGs they belong to.
