Issue 49 - Veterinary Workforce Survey Reminder
The survey is undertaken every second year to examine the current profile of the veterinary profession and anticipate future trends and changes. The information is intended to help the profession, government, veterinary boards and others to understand how the provision of veterinary services may be affected by various factors, including increasing or decreasing numbers of veterinary graduates, career breaks, part-time working, early retirement and veterinarians choosing to work outside the profession.
There is benefit to the veterinary profession, government and veterinary boards in the data being as representative as possible and we encourage registered veterinarians to complete the survey.
The AVA provides a commitment that the results will be made freely available to the Board and will include comparisons with the previous survey results. All reports on past surveys can be viewed at http://www.ava.com.au/workforce-data
