Benefits of AAV Student Membership
Share |

AAV offers two types of student membership - student chapter and individual. Does your vet school have 5 or more students in an avian club? Form an AAV Student Chapter and affiliate your chapter with AAV to receive all the chapter benefits below. 


Students may also opt to join as individual student members. See individual member benefits below.


  Open to all Chapter Members

AAV-sponsored Chapter Activities

Chapters can apply for funding for avian educational activities through a new program being launched in the Spring 2017. This means more hands-on avian education at your chapter meetings on your campus.

Avian Internships, Externships and Residencies

Externship Scholarships!

All veterinary students entering their clinical year who intend to complete an externship at a veterinary facility that evaluates at least 10 avian cases per week are eligible to apply for the student externship scholarship

Present your Findings!

AAV holds an annual student manuscript competition. The winner presents the findings of their case report or research paper at the annual AAV conference and a summary of the manuscript is published in the conference proceedings. 

Conference Registration Discounts & Lab Assistantships

AAV’s annual conference is recognized as one of the leading sources of avian education in the world. Veterinary students may attend at minimal cost and even earn cash while learning if you participate as a paid lab assistant.
