The Economic Summit, presented in partnership with Merck Animal Health, is the only event that focuses solely on the economic challenges and opportunities of the veterinary profession. The AVMA has convened this CE conference annually for six years, and the meeting continues evolving.

This year’s summit will focus on important and emerging topics like behavioral change, innovation, and technology. Presentations and working sessions will arm attendees with the knowledge needed to help veterinary businesses, clients and our profession adopt new behaviors and create change.

The conference agenda features presenters from both inside and outside veterinary medicine, including two keynote speakers: Dr. Jayson Lusk, head of agricultural economics at Purdue University, and Allen Gannett, chief strategy officer of Skyword. We’ve added more time and content this year, with topics that cover the full breadth of economic issues affecting veterinary medicine. These include:

  • Behavioral economics
  • Consumer preferences and behavior
  • Student debt and education
  • Veterinary employment and compensation
  • Demand for veterinary services
  • Pet ownership and attitudes

  • Practice management and performance
