The Salary Survey and Calculator

This survey is a compilation of the most recent statistics as graduating seniors enter the job market. It indicates the range and average of starting salaries, and an estimate of distribution of graduates. This data is voluntary and self-reported by graduates; therefore, is not verified as to accuracy. The AVMA publishes data from all Colleges of Veterinary Medicine yearly.
