The Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) has begun its latest Comparative Data Report (CDR) project, the association’s largest institutional research project designed to generate a comprehensive statistical portrait of academic veterinary medicine.
Data collected regarding faculty, applicants, student enrollment, tuition, educational debt, and finances and shared via reports, infographics, and more helps the AAVMC tell the story of academic veterinary medicine. The CDR also supports the production of the public data set that helps those outside the veterinary profession better understand the modern operating environment for academic veterinary medicine.
The data collection effort concludes early November; the final report will be delivered to participating institutions by Dec. 21.
Changes and additions to this year’s CDR:
- Survey of institutional scholarships a regular component
- Data collection improvement in budget, expenditure surveys
- Includes international colleges in survey of research funding sources; includes appropriate categories for research expenditures, awarded grants
- Questions identify residents pursuing graduate degrees within colleges
- Includes periodic surveys with more detailed race, ethnicity data on academic personnel
