Minnesota Opportunities for Veterinarian Engagement



MOVE is the newest initiative by the Minnesota Veterinary Medical Association to support the professional success and development of veterinarians through social and educational networking opportunities.

Engage with your peers and meet experienced individuals in the veterinary profession. Network in a fun, relaxed setting while enjoying the company of your colleagues.

Connect to those going through similar professional experiences. Share and receive advice on relevant topics to you and your career.

Success happens when you are able to engage, connect and learn from others. We want you to move through your veterinarian career with ease and with the tools necessary to be successful.
