Utilization of U.S. Veterinarians in International Programs

Comment on this policy for review Fall 2017

​The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) actively encourages programs to expand opportunities for, and improve the education and training of, United States veterinarians to be of greater service and utilization in the developing countries of the world.

To this end, the AVMA will use its influence to stimulate the development by federal governmental agencies, such as the Department of Agriculture, Department of Defense, Department of Health and Human Services, and Agency for International Development, of programs that encourage the utilization of United States veterinarians in international programs, such as those sponsored by the Food and Agriculture Organization, World Health Organization, Pan American Health Organization, World Bank, and World Organization for Animal Health (OIE).
