The Nation's Animal Health Forum Since 1897.
The purpose of the United States Animal Health Association's (USAHA) Committee on Diagnostic Laboratory and Veterinary Workforce Development is to serve as a forum for Canada, Mexico and the United States to exchange information with the intent to educate policy makers and influence North American's policy on two issues:
The committee should consider information about the capacity of the United States, Canadian and Mexican veterinary medical colleges to train veterinarians and provide post-graduate education in veterinary sciences. The committee should also consider information about the resources and sustained funding that are needed to provide adequate infrastructure and workforce in North America's diagnostic and research animal health laboratories.
The committee shall annually present information in the form of a report to USAHA. The committee may seek to influence public policy with regard to veterinarian capacity and laboratory infrastructure and funding through appropriate recommendations and resolutions. Members of the committee are expected to further the goals and mission of this committee by education and/or urging support in their respective countries, governments, institutions and industries.
