All of the doctors at our hospitals are members of the American Veterinary Medical Association. The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), established in 1863, is a not-for-profit association representing more than 84,000 veterinarians working in private and corporate practice, government, industry, academia, and uniformed services. Structured to work for its members, the AVMA acts as a collective voice for its membership and for the profession.
As with the AVMA, all of our doctors are members of the Delaware Veterinary Medical association. The Delaware Veterinary Medical Association, is a professional association for licensed veterinarians.The purposes of the Delaware Veterinary Medical Association are to:
Cultivate the veterinary medical science and veterinary literature
Elevate the standards of veterinary education and teaching
Enlighten and direct public opinion regarding veterinary problems within the State
Promote good fellowship among practitioners of veterinary medicine in the state of Delaware
Protect the material interests of the veterinary profession and to present to the world its achievements
Engage in all lawful acts and activities in furtherance of these purposes.
The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) was founded in 1954 by a group of 11 charter members who saw that together they could direct the focus of equine veterinary medicine. Today, the AAEP, headquartered in Lexington, Ky., at the Kentucky Horse Park, represents an educated group of men and women who cover a broad range of equine disciplines, breeds and associations. Nearly 10,000 veterinarians and veterinary students in 61 countries are members of the AAEP.
The AAEP's mission is to improve the health and welfare of the horse, to further the professional development of its members, and to provide resources and leadership for the benefit of the equine industry. These principles have guided the AAEP for more than 50 years in the activities and services it provides.
