Vet Ed Info hub
Continuing professional development is a great way to keep in touch with your peers and remain in contact with the profession in your retirement.
National, SIG, division and branch events are a great opportunity to catch up with news and colleagues alike. You can share your expertise with a presentation, or explore your areas of interest. All AVA and other continuing professional development events are listed in the Vet Ed calendar.
Reading and contributing to the many AVA publications on offer is a perfect opportunity to stay in touch with the latest advances, but also to use your years of knowledge and experience to help advance veterinary science as a peer reviewer.
Mentoring is a great way to give back to the profession by helping a younger veterinarian find their feet. University students, graduates, and practising veterinarians are often looking for mentors to help guide them in a particular area. The AVA Mentor Program Guide provides information about your role as a mentor. You can apply to become a mentor online.
Or share your years of expertise through online discussions with an AVA community. Some SIGs have email discussion groups, while the AVA discussion forums are open to all members.
There is a range of opportunities online, through further study, or in your own time that will help you pursue your veterinary areas of interest. You can see the full range available via the Who does what? page.
