AVMA Axon: Your trusted source for digital CE

Continuing education is critical for veterinary professionals looking to stay at the forefront of our field. With new techniques, research, and trends emerging constantly, we look for CE that is relevant, convenient, and practical. We don't just want to learn – We want ways to incorporate this learning into our daily lives. That's how we meet our personal and professional goals.

The AVMA has you covered, whether you're a veterinarian, technician, practice manager, or other team member. In addition to the high-quality CE you rely on at AVMA Convention and other AVMA meetings, we also offer digital CE that takes online learning to a new level.

AVMA Axon, our digital education center, provides a full library of convenient, easy-to-use CE courses with a promise that you'll find ways to apply your learning immediately.

The name AVMA Axon takes inspiration from the axons in the human nervous system, which act as messengers, carrying information from cell to cell to create action. Like them, AVMA Axon transforms learning into activity – by incorporating "Axon Actions" you can implement after completing each course. Axon Actions cement your learning and help you apply it toward achieving your goals.

AVMA Axon helps you transform knowledge and information into new behaviors that make a real impact in your life and the lives of your patients.

With 24/7 access to on-demand courses and recorded podcasts, and a calendar of live webinars to choose from, you're guaranteed high-quality content whenever and wherever you decide.
