This is the second survey on the veterinary profession across Europe.
The FVE’s 2015 survey revealed a number of interesting findings, such as the need for professional diversification, for improved support of new and recent graduates and for better use and uptake of IT-based tools. It furthermore identified the need to improve the wellbeing of veterinarians, to enhance female leadership and to gain a better grasp of business matters. This led FVE to develop VetFutures Europe2 in the spring of 2016. Its goal: to identify challenges facing our profession now and in the coming decades, and to develop an action plan to address these challenges.
The majority of European veterinarians in the future will be female. While in 2018 58% of veterinarians of all ages were female, 82% of those under 30 years of age are female. This is one of the findings of the second VetSurvey about the veterinary profession in Europe that has been conducted by the European Federation of Veterinarians (FVE) between November 2018 and March 2019. Veterinarians located in 30 European countries were asked to complete an online survey.
