The AVA is offering an exciting new session in the AVA National Conference program called VetEd Talks – Passion for the Profession. The aim of the session is for veterinarians to present succinct inspirational stories and food for thought to the profession.

To apply, you must be an AVA member and you'll need to submit a video of maximum two minute duration. In the video you should introduce:
  • Yourself
  • Your presentation topic
  • Why you feel passionate about the topic
  • Why you would like to share this with the veterinary community
You will need to upload your video to YouTube, set as 'unlisted' and submit a link for the selection committee to review.

  5. As the video is uploading, you can edit both the basic information and the advanced settings of the video. We suggest you include your full name in the title.
