 Consultative site visits slated for two foreign colleges

Posted May 15, 2005

Having received the Executive Board's approval, the AVMA Council on Education will send a consultative team—two council members and one AVMA staff member—for a preliminary site visit to the Veterinary School of Lyon, France, and to the Universidad Nacional Aut�noma de M�xico, Mexico City. The council submitted the recommendation after the colleges stated their intention to earn AVMA accreditation.

An established foreign veterinary college may request that the council send a consultative team for an unofficial appraisal of how its program relates to the 11 AVMA accreditation standards. The college will submit a detailed self-study report to the council and will pay for all travel and administrative expenses.

The council will visit France on Oct. 3-8 and will travel to Mexico during spring 2006.
