AVTE Fellows Application

Thank you for your interest in the AVTE Fellows Program. Earning the AVTE Fellows designation is an impactful step to demonstrating your place as a committed part of our community of educators. Through their actions, those who earn the AVTE Fellows designation will have shown their commitment to leadership, mentorship, and innovation within veterinary medicine, growing the next generation of veterinary technicians.

Earning the Fellows designation entails demonstrating your commitment to core tenets in four ways.

  • By meeting a set of criteria that all candidates must complete.

  • Earning a minimum score through self-study in three core areas: leadership, mentorship, innovation

  • Providing two letters from colleagues that attest to your commitment to our field

  • Commitment to uphold the AVTE Fellows code of conduct

To offset the costs of administering the program, there is a one-time fee of $50 to apply for the designation. You will be given a link to pay this processing fee at the end of your application. Your application will be placed into review once that payment is completed.

As you begin this online submission, the application will guide you through a set of questions that you will answer to demonstrate the successful completion of the four elements in your application. If you have any questions at any time, please reach out to AVTE staff ([email protected]).

We are excited that you have decided to take this step in your career as an educator and look forward to presenting you with this special credential soon.
