The AVA is the peak national body representing the Australian veterinary profession, delivering a range of services and benefits to over 9,500 members.
For nearly 100 years, we’ve represented Australian veterinarians nationwide. Providing our members with access to continuing professional development (CPD) of the highest calibre on the latest scientific thinking is a key focus of the AVA. Our CPD program planning begins up to two years in advance to ensure it includes veterinary science and business training that is interesting, relevant and accessible, so that we maintain a highly skilled veterinary workforce.
Looking ahead we will embrace new technologies to proactively assist our members with more flexible and appropriate learning outcomes.
The Veterinary Business Group (VBG) offers an array of hands-on practical and inspirational continuing professional development opportunities for the veterinary leaders of today and tomorrow.
Our growing member base includes; practice managers/owners, veterinarians, nurses, customer service teams, and colleagues working in industry with a vision to form a strong business community fit for today and the future.
At the VBG, we are committed to driving innovation and supporting businesses to function at their peak.
We aim to foster leadership, future-proof businesses, and create sustainable practice models.
Membership of the Veterinary Business Group is open to both veterinarians and non-veterinarians. Non-veterinarians just need to become associate members of the AVA first. For more information on membership benefits and joining, visit our website
