Thinking about change?

Prepared by the 2013-2014 Future Leaders, this toolkit provides some information to help you start your career transition process. Each of the links above contain detailed information and is only accessible by AVMA members. Explore the Veterinary Career Transitions pages to read information on getting started with your transition. Find out more about career options that exist for veterinarians and how to assess what kind of careers are a good fit for you. Learn how to 'translate' what you likely do every day in practice into other career settings, and how to market those skills. Finally, see what jobs are available now.

If you have any questions about career transition, please contact Dr. Pat Wohlferth-Bethke at pwohlferthatavma [dot] org.
