How VetMedAcademy Can Help You

Keep Teaching and Learning

Learning During COVID-19 

VetMedAcademy was created in 2017 to helps students supplement their learning and for faculty to publish and curate content from our learning resources. Its resources are free to qualified applicants. We recognize that the COVID-19 pandemic has required veterinary education to be required to go rapidly online.  VMA was envisioned as a largely free veterinary and animal health-specific resource for students and faculty worldwide, primarily with blended learning and self-review in mind. But we do know a thing or two about online learning.

Contributors are veterinarians and veterinary faculty so we have experience with what a learner needs to know. So, please look here first for your current learning and teaching needs.  VMA certainly has gaps, but faculty, please consider helping us fill them. We are releasing new learning modules as quickly as possible, but as they say, "It takes a village," particularly now.  Also, look soon for our open learning module for new micro-content that might not justify an entire learning module by itself. And students, please tell us what you need in these challenging times.   

Along these lines, we would like to give a shout out to our content partners MSD (Merck) Veterinary Manual and Brief Media (Clinician's Brief and Plumb's Veterinary Drugs) for partnering with us as we "curate" their excellent content, and also by helping get the word out.

Faculty, learn about online learning in the veterinary context in the Blended Learning and Critical Thinking learning module (click button below), and engage your students over clinical cases in Clinician's Case Rounds. We are collating updated suggestions and tools for online learning there. 

If you have specific needs or would like to arrange for the direct connection to VMA learning modules from your learning management system, please contact

And everyone...stay healthy and safe.
