Introducing AVMA Axon: Next-generation digital education

Published on March 28, 2019

Regular readers of this blog might have noticed a couple of weeks ago that we told you we had an exciting announcement coming regarding continuing education. That day has arrived.

This week, we’ve launched a new digital-education center that provides the high-quality CE you rely on from the AVMA, accessible to you 24/7 in a convenient and practical online platform.

Introducing AVMA Axon™, your new online home for practical, relevant CE that you can apply immediately in both your professional and personal life.

What is AVMA Axon?

AVMA Axon™ offers online learning that you can incorporate into your daily life – immediately. Whether you're a veterinarian, technician, practice manager, or other team member, you’ll find CE that gives you the very latest information you need – about the newest studies, techniques, and trends – along with actionable ways to apply it to your daily life and work.

The name AVMA Axon™ takes inspiration from the axons in our own neural pathways, which act as messengers, carrying information from cell to cell to create action. Like these, AVMA Axon™ helps you transform knowledge and information into real action.

How? By incorporating “Axon Actions” – steps you can take after completing courses to apply the learning to your life in concrete ways. In this way, AVMA Axon does more than just fulfill your CE requirements. It helps you learn and implement new behaviors that make a real impact in your life and the lives of your patients.

Comprehensive, quality CE you can trust

AVMA Axon™ builds on and extends our previous digital educational offerings – including the popular Lead & Learn webinar series – and provides an easy-to-access library of learning. You’ll find live webinars, on-demand recordings, podcasts, and coming soon… in-depth certificate programs.  AVMA Axon™ has information you can use – everything from the current status of cannabis in veterinary medicine, to career opportunities in disaster veterinary medicine. Choose among these topical categories:

  • Agile Pioneers
  • Career Development
  • Financial Health
  • Leadership
  • One Health
  • Policy and Practice
  • Wellbeing, Diversity, and Inclusion
  • Coming Soon: Advocacy

The AVMA Axon™ platform makes it easy to track your educational goals. You can mark the courses you’ve completed, see courses in progress, and log all of your CE credits – even from other educational providers.

One AVMA Axon™ offering we’re especially excited to announce is our new podcast series, My Veterinary Life, which offers a personal glimpse into the lives and journeys of our peers. Hosted by two early-career veterinarians, each episode introduces us to a guest veterinarian, discussing the journeys, challenges – and often hilarious anecdotes – that got them to where they are today. It’s a fun and inspiring way to learn about the unique individuals who make up our veterinary community.

Stay tuned for more

We’re continuing to build on AVMA Axon™, adding new courses and programs every month. Coming soon, we’ll be launching our first multi-module certificate program – the AVMA Workplace Wellbeing Certificate, which will offer a more expansive and interactive learning experience.

AVMA Axon™ is a resource for the entire veterinary community. As a benefit of AVMA membership, all of the current offerings are free for AVMA members. You can start exploring today at

AVMA Axon™ is made possible in part through funding from these partners: Merck Animal Health, Royal Canin, Zomedica, Hill's Pet Nutrition, CareCredit, and VMG.
