Vision, Mission & Objectives

VPAT stands for the Veterinary Practitioners Association of Thailand, an organization founded in 1968 as a club with no more than 10 veterinarians determined to improve the standard of veterinary practice in Thailand. At present the club has become one of the nation’s most prominent veterinary associations with members reaching 5,929 (as of November 2018). VPAT generates activities to support the veterinarian in clinical and academic expertise, ethical and social issues and legal matters. One of the key elements required to achieve its goal in unifying standards in veterinary practice is sustainable continuing education.
