STUDENT DEBT IS A CRITICAL ISSUE IN THE VETERINARY PROFESSION.
Most foundations give money. We give resources. We believe a healthy animal community depends on a healthy veterinary community. Our resources help veterinarians thrive so they can help our animals and those who care for them. Each of our resources are available to all veterinarians and veterinary students at no cost. We are regularly updating the resources with the most up to date information.
Veterinary medicine encompasses inspection of animal food and meat, academia and research, international health and public awareness, as well as cutting-edge surgery, diagnostic testing, and medical treatments for every animal species. The strength and health of our pets, agriculture, research, families, and communities depends upon a healthy, vibrant, and strong veterinary profession.
We need your support: get involved or offer financial support to ensure veterinary professionals have the tools, confidence and support to thrive. If you want to stay updated please complete the Get Updates form.
The VIN Foundation Student Debt Center is a mobile-friendly comprehensive resource helping veterinary students, veterinarians, and those who support them manage student debt through school and beyond.
Going from being a veterinary student to a real life animal doctor can be overwhelming. The Thrive in Five Toolkit helps new veterinary school graduates thrive as veterinarians in their first five years out of veterinary school.
