January 10-12, 2019—College Station, Texas

Veterinary care is evolving; pet owners are looking for more personalized, convenient, and affordable resources to ensure their companions are happy and healthy. The role of the veterinarian is also changing as we seek new ways to communicate with, monitor, and support our patients both inside and outside of the hospital walls. You will be challenged to create technological strategies and solutions to improve veterinary patient outcomes. Solutions may incorporate aspects of veterinary clinical skills training, creation of sensors to monitor the health of non-verbal patients, or the implementation of new diagnostic tools to empower the veterinary team. There has never been a better time to transform veterinary care.

Applications will open November 11.

The Veterinary Entrepreneurship Academy is a 10-week summer program that creates an immersive, high-impact experience allowing students to receive a robust business education through a collaborative, web-based platform focused on the Fundamentals of Entrepreneurship.

Concurrent paid internships at some of the most innovative veterinary and pet health companies across North America allow the students to actively apply those concepts and principles throughout the program.

The goal of the VEA is to educate, inspire, and activate veterinary students as they are transformed into future leaders and innovators within the veterinary and pet industries. It is designed to empower these students with the mindset and skills to thrive in the changing world of animal health.
