AAAP - American Association of Avian Pathologists

The American Association of Avian Pathologists is an international association whose mission is to promote scientific knowledge to enhance the health, well–being, and productivity of poultry to provide safe and abundant food for the world.

Established in 1957, it is open to anyone who is engaged in some phase of avian diseases. It was launched as a national organization for veterinary practitioners, diagnosticians, researchers, and students interested in poultry health and medicine. With annual meetings involving both national and international members, interested individuals come together to discuss poultry diseases and further advance the field of poultry medicine. In 2007, celebrating 50 years, AAAP published AAAP- The First 50 Years 1957-2007, prepared by the AAAP History Committee and edited by John Dunn. Each year AAAP conducts a scientific program and symposium where the latest findings and issues regarding diseases in poultry are shared and discussed. AAAP also publishes Avian Diseases, a quarterly, international journal for original basic or clinical research from various disciplines including microbiology, immunology and pathology. In addition, AAAP publishes many educational materials on avian health, including Diseases of Poultry and the Avian Disease Manual. AAAP committees and interest groups offer members a forum for discussion and action on specific poultry topics and issues. Through the AAAP Foundation, scholarships and awards are given each year to support those who are striving for careers in poultry medicine and acknowledge outstanding achievement in the area of poultry medicine. AAAP facilitates member collaboration to advance science-based knowledge, expertise, and education on poultry health, welfare, and food safety. The American Association of Avian Pathologists Foundation, founded in 1988, is the charitable arm of the AAAP. It is dedicated to the encouragement and development of talented individuals who are interested in careers in poultry health and/or food safety. It provides scholarship and award opportunities for undergraduate students, veterinary students, non-veterinary students, and post graduate students. The Mission of The AAAP Foundation is to encourage excellence and enables opportunity for those dedicated to nourishing the world with a sustainable abundance of healthy poultry. Through the AAAP Foundation and its partners, 40+ scholarships are offered each year. The foundation supports those pursuing a career in poultry medicine and recognizes excellence and achievement in the field of poultry medicine through member awards. Scholarship award amounts range from $500 to $5,000.
