How HE reform can help vets to be

The Australian Veterinary Association reports it told a meeting with the O’Kane Accord that “increased government support’ is critical to achieve “a more diverse and sustainable workforce that meets the growing need for veterinary services”

But how?

The AVA’s submission to Greens senator, Mehreen Faruqi’s bill to raise the income threshold for student debt repayments and end CPI indexation might indicate the sort of approach the association has in mind.

The vets asked for a study debt, “forgiveness scheme” for 80 new graduates a year, who work in regional/remote Australia (CMM March 15).
