What’s a Clinic Membership? 

OVMA’s individual membership gives you access to many career and well-being resources and services, discounts and many perks exclusive to only association members.  


Although practice owners can register as an individual member, upgrading to a clinic membership provides you with access to additional business-focused benefits such as discounts on accountingcoaching and budgeting services, which are indispensable for the health and success of your practice.  


OVMA’s clinic membership is also a great way for practice owners to save money on memberships for other veterinarians working in their practice.
