Recognizing all disciplines and careers 

The Excellence Awards recognize service, commitment, and accomplishments benefiting veterinary medicine, across every kind of work. Nominees can include educators, researchers, clinical practitioners, veterinary advocates, and even those who are not veterinarians – anyone whose work significantly contributes to advancing veterinary medicine.

By rewarding excellence across all disciplines, the awards shine a light on veterinary medicine:

  • Showcasing the broad expertise of veterinarians
  • Advancing public perception of our profession
  • Highlighting the important work of veterinarians, including in careers that aren’t always in the public eye

When you nominate a colleague, you not only offer them well-deserved recognition. You give back to veterinary medicine by spotlighting the important work of veterinary professionals everywhere.

The variety of awards shows the breadth of veterinary medicine, the diversity of veterinary careers, and the many ways in which veterinary professionals protect animal and human health:

Powered by you

Remember: Only those people who are identified and nominated by individual colleagues can be considered.

Help your AVMA community recognize our profession’s most accomplished leaders. View the awards categories and criteria at avma.org/Awards, and submit your nominations before the deadline on February 22, 2023.
