About Multicultural Veterinary Medical Association

Veterinary medicine is one of the least culturally, racially, and ethnically diverse professions in America. As a result, the voices of those on the fringes are often unheard. It can be an isolating experience. The Multicultural Veterinary Medical Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed in 2014 to address this need. We seek to foster a community of veterinary professionals from diverse backgrounds and cultures to create a mutual support network for our members. Furthermore, our goal is to harness the collective knowledge of our members to address both our own needs and the needs of a modern, multicultural society.
