What is the VLA?

We’re a group of people who work and are interested in the field of veterinary clinical testing. We have formed the Veterinary Laboratory Association to provide a meaningful avenue for the constant improvement of our profession.

Anyone interested in the field of veterinary clinical laboratory medicine is eligible to join. Membership will provide many advantages to the individual and laboratory.

Information sharing and Peer Networking.

Through VLA’s Website, forum and meetings, a wealth of information concerning techniques, products, equipment, problems, successes, etc. will be shared.

Continuing Education

Continuing education is one of the most important goals of the VLA. This is accomplished through workshops, webinars, meetings, regional seminars and VLA website updates.

Quality Assurance.

The VLA’s partnership with the University of Prince Edward Island’s Atlantic Veterinary College (AVC) has helped to bring one of the most complete and widely used Veterinary Quality Assurance programs to veterinary diagnostic laboratories all over the world.
