The breakthrough hours-tracking solution simplifies veterinary school applications.
The American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) has teamed up with Liaison International—an admissions technology company—to launch the Time2Track app. This solution streamlines the grueling veterinary school application process of tracking, documenting, and sharing relevant experience hours.
"We're pleased to see Liaison develop this new app to make the application process more efficient and user-friendly," said Andrew T. Maccabe, DVM, MPH, JD, CEO of the AAVMC, in a company release.
"This new integration will help applicants document, organize, and submit information that helps our member institutions make the best admissions decisions,” he added.
According to research accumulated from the Veterinary Medicine Centralized Application Service (VMCAS)—an application software developed by Liaison and used by nearly every veterinary school in the US—applicants document an average of 2,200 total experience hours from jobs, internships, undergraduate coursework, and more. Therefore, the integration of Time2Track simplifies this process as students apply through the VMCAS to any of the 46 veterinary schools worldwide.
"This solution helps prospective veterinary school students track and safeguard their earned hours of experience and seamlessly transfer them to their VMCAS application. Most importantly, it makes the highly competitive application process a clear pathway to the profession," said George Haddad, founder and CEO of Liaison, in the release.
