VetMedAcademy.org is an educational charity based in the U.S. dedicated to the creation, curation and sharing of open-sourced veterinary educational materials for veterinary and animal health students worldwide. It is the charity arm of VetMedTeam.com, which offers training to veterinary technicians and veterinarians.
VetMedAcademy’s constantly evolving learning modules include unique and curated open-source short videos, readings, links and quizzes with automatic feedback, and case-based exercises to encourage critical clinical thinking. Its charity mission seeks to always maintain these resources FREE to students and faculty worldwide.
