Bye, bye, student debt

Bye, bye, student debt

The AVMA published statistics showing the average debt of veterinary graduates continues to soar over $167,000 while some care debt loads over $400,000. The veterinary profession faces compassion fatigue challenges with the burden of student debt being piled on top. We've been listening, and we need to do our part to help our people overcome these challenges. Encore Vet Group is committed to helping our Veterinarians and Credentialed Veterinary Technicians by paying off their student debt.


Introducing the Student Debt Freedom Award

Raising the Bar
on Lowering Debt

The Student Debt Freedom Award was created to significantly impact the lives of Veterinarians and Credentialed Veterinary Technicians who face extreme student debt and burnout challenges. By paying off the student debt for the selected recipients, Encore Vet Group hopes to help team members live happier and more fulfilling lives.

Making an Impact

We've been listening and we hear you. We know how much of a burden student debt can be in the veterinary profession. We are here to help. Encore Vet Group estimates over $2.5 million in annual student debt contributions for recipients of the Student Debt Freedom Award.

Encore seems to constantly surprise me in the well thought out signs of appreciation. It is not surprising that the level of debt many of us are facing is a constant weight on our shoulders, but most companies ignore it. That’s where Encore seems to be one step ahead of the competition. To not only acknowledge it, but to help even one veterinarian remove that burden is insane.
