At the Center of Excellence for Diversity and Inclusion in Veterinary Medicine we envision an inclusive veterinary profession that is prepared to meet the needs of our increasingly diverse society. We believe that establishing a veterinary workforce where all individuals are inspired, supported, and empowered to achieve their full potential, will lead to breakthroughs in animal and public health.
Human-Centered Veterinary Medicine recognizes that a veterinarian’s relationship with an animal’s caretaker is a crucial factor in optimizing that animal’s health and wellbeing. Center goals will focus on providing resources that increase intercultural competencies of veterinary professionals and lead to inclusive workplaces that are welcoming for both professionals and clients.
Are you prepared to meet the needs of our increasingly diverse society? Purdue University, through the Center of Excellence for Diversity and Inclusion in Veterinary Medicine, presents online professional certification programs designed for veterinarians, veterinary technicians, educators, students, and staff who seek to improve their communication, leadership, teaching/learning, and cultural competency skills. Help change the face of veterinary medicine by contributing to inclusive work and learning environments where everyone can reach their full potential.
