Roseworthy Veterinary Alumni Network News
Sharing alumni stories and news from industry and the School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences.
South Australian Veterinary Workforce Survey
The Roseworthy Veterinary Alumni (RVA) Network has undertaken a remuneration analysis for South Australian veterinarians. This report was inspired by the Australian Veterinary Association (AVA) 2021 Workforce Survey, and considered the following:
- The fields in which South Australian veterinarians are employed
- On what basis South Australian veterinarians are employed, and how many hours they work each week; and
- How South Australian veterinarians are remunerated.
Thank you to the 266 participants who responded to the RVA’s workforce survey. Your contributions have been invaluable in generating our findings.
