    Adventures in Veterinary Medicine (AVM) Online program at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University

For students who are trying to determine whether veterinary medicine is the right career path, AVM is a great way to gain a deeper understanding of the profession. The program is also helpful for students who have already decided on a future in veterinary medicine, as it allows them to collaborate with current veterinary students and explore important topics within the field.
