  • Provide a means of entry to the College for those with a particular interest in veterinary epidemiology;
  • Provide a means of accreditation of veterinary epidemiologists;
  • Encourage research in, and application of, veterinary epidemiology;
  • Facilitate the exchange of knowledge between veterinary epidemiologists;
  • Further the professional education and training of veterinary epidemiologists; and

The Epidemiology Chapter achieves these objectives by:

  • Assisting candidates for Membership and Fellowship examination, including through a mentor system and provision of a study guide;
  • Providing examiners for Membership and Fellowship exams;
  • Supporting and delivering continuing education opportunities for its members, including organising a program as part of the annual ANZCVS Science Week conference; and
  • Awarding a medal to a final year veterinary student at all veterinary schools in Australia and New Zealand for excellence in veterinary epidemiology.
