The mid-level practitioner…what is it, and how could it impact veterinary medicine in Colorado? For over a year, CVMA has been asking these questions to evaluate whether a new veterinary professional could positively impact the delivery of veterinary medicine in Colorado.
Advocacy is always the number one job at CVMA, and the mid-level practitioner issue is no different; CVMA has worked long and hard behind the scenes to ask the hard questions and ensure the voices of members have been represented during discussions regarding the mid-level practitioner.
NOTE: The terms “mid-level practitioner” and “veterinary professional associate” are often interchanged and can be considered synonymous.

Opposing this initiative will be a very long process. CVMA and other agriculture groups are working hard to prepare for a long opposition effort.
