About AAVA

The American Association of Veterinary Anatomists is the professional body representing veterinary anatomists from North America. The purpose of the association is the advancement of veterinary anatomical science. The AAVA was founded in 1949 and currently has more than 200 members. While most members are faculty, staff and students from colleges of veterinary medicine in the US, Canada, and the Caribbean, currently the association also includes veterinary anatomists from Africa, Asia, Europe, and South America. Private scholars and veterinary practitioners are also welcome.

Anyone with an active interest in veterinary anatomy is eligible for membership. If you are interested, we encourage you to contact AAVA Membership Services.
