WVA Model Veterinarians’ Oath

On 27th April 2019, the WVA Council adopted the WVA Model Veterinarians’ Oath.

In the past year, the WVA Veterinary Education Working Group developed the attached Model Veterinarians’ Oath.  The most common use of a Veterinarians’ Oath is to swear in new veterinarians upon their entry into the profession at or immediately following graduation from a veterinary educational establishment.


The intent for the WVA Model Veterinarians’ Oath is to be used as a template by veterinary organizations that have not yet developed an oath or by those associations considering revising an existing oath. This Model Oath can be refined by an organization to emphasize those professional responsibilities of particular significance to any given country or region.
