There are several standing Student AVMA committees which benefit Student AVMA members and represent student views to AVMA committees. A listing of these committees are as follows.
The Animal Welfare-Human Animal Bond Committee shall keep abreast of topics related to animal welfare, inform the HOD, and provide information for distribution to local chapters of the Student AVMA. This shall include information on professional ethics as they relate to animal welfare and the human animal bond as well as information regarding domestic, exotic and laboratory animals.Animal Welfare–Human Animal Bond Committee Member Area
The committee shall serve to encourage the development and refinement of veterinary educational programs at veterinary schools in the United States and other AVMA-accredited institutions, promote education and awareness on current economic issues within the veterinary industry, and provide opportunities for student personal and professional development. The Committee also serves to maintain relationships with the American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges and the American Association of Veterinary State Boards. These liaisons shall represent SAVMA, as well as provide accurate and evidence-based information on changes within the veterinary profession as it pertains to education, licensure, and economics to SAVMA and veterinary professionals.
The Integrative Communications and Diversity Committee seeks to reinforce and enhance communication lines between the AVMA, SAVMA, and the Student Chapters and Student Associates of the AVMA. In addition to promoting exchange of information within the veterinary community, other goals of the ICDC committee include reaching out to sponsor veterinary related projects in the community as well as promoting diversity within veterinary medicine. Two scholarships are awarded by this committee. The first is the Communicating Diversity: The Many Faces of Veterinary Medicine Grant and the second is the Multicultural Diversity Awareness Grant.Integrative Communications and Diversity Committee Member Area
