AVMA President To Tackle Vet Med’s Financial Challenges

Dr. José Arce, the American Veterinary Medical Association’s incoming president, announced that during his first year in office he will focus on removing financial barriers for those who wish to enter the field of veterinary medicine. He will also prioritize promoting the well-being of veterinarians, including veterinary students.

Arce said that high student debt and other “formidable” economic challenges threaten the wellness of professionals in veterinary medicine. He said he will work to improve the educational debt-to-income disparities by advocating legislators to propose low-interest or interest-free student loans so that veterinary degrees are more accessible.
