Success starts with community

We are a community of individuals who are committed to making a difference in the life of our equine patients and their owners.
Purpose of the AAEVT

Since our inception, the AAEVT's mission has been clear: to provide premium continuing education, create a thriving community, and to advocate for the entire equine veterinary health care team. We are passionate about our profession, striving to equip our community with the tools needed for success.

Our initiatives span across the U.S. and virtually, encompassing in-person wet labs and lectures, including a four-day annual conference, and monthly online events. Our suite of resources for our members features our Career Center, Online Certification Academy, focused specialty Societies, and Equine Manual.

We truly believe that success starts with community. Come join us!

Our Career Center is a one-stop resource with advancement tips and easily searchable opportunities in the equine industry. It is designed to connect job seekers with potential employers and help employers find top talent for their practices and hospitals.

I am constantly reminded how lucky I am to be part of the AAEVT when I need to reach out for information, recommendations and advice from my peers. Having access to a dedicated, professional group of technicians and assistants is invaluable on a daily basis; not just at our annual meeting.
