Veterinary Associations and Organizations

The veterinarian associations and organizations listed below foster the discovery, sharing and application of scientific knowledge concerning the care and responsible use of animals to enhance animal and human health and well-being.

The focus of many of these organizations is often twofold: to enhance the contribution of veterinary medicine to the health conservation, management and welfare of wildlife; to educate and gain rapport with governmental agencies and wildlife resource interest groups of support and educational services which may be provided by wildlife veterinarians.

Research and scientific information are often communicated in an open transparent manner where members engage in wildlife health research, clinical medicine, teaching, disease surveillance, regulatory work, and administration. Many specialists in medical, surgical, and radiation oncology, internists, pathologists, pharmacologists and general practitioners from around the world are involved.

Several of these organizations are open to students and graduates of schools of veterinary medicine.
