Let us help you kick off your career. The first few years out of school can be the hardest. Repaying debt, finding a job, and making ends meet can seem impossible. That’s why PVMA has tailored resources for new graduates, including on online Recent Graduate Toolkit, tailored education at our conferences, an online career center, and discounted contract review for when you find a job.

Available only to members, the resources in our Recent Graduate Toolkit have been specially gathered to help your transition into practice. Sections of the toolkit include Communications Strategies, Connections & Networking, Financial Planning, Practicing in Pennsylvania, Job Search, and Transitioning into Practice.

PVMA offers reduced registration rates for our members to our four major conferences a year. Conferences are located across the state so there is a location that is convenient for everyone.

We also offer free webinars and district dinner meetings throughout the year for you to gain more knowledge from the comfort of your home or office. 

Based on an initiative generously supported by Elanco Animal Health as part of their commitment to the veterinary profession and state veterinary associations, the Power of Ten Leadership (P10) Academy is designed to cultivate leadership capacity in recent graduates and provide learning experiences that will enrich you as an individual and benefit the practice where you work, the community where you live, and the profession you love.
