At its spring 2010 meeting, the COE will review public comments it received concerning proposed changes to accreditation Standard 2 Finances; Standard 3, Physical Facilities and Equipment; and Standard 4 Clinical Resources. Solicitation of public comment was made through the COE's web page as well as the AVMA's Network of Animal Health online discussion forum. This year was also the first time that comments were solicited through a twitter announcement. Deans of accredited veterinary schools were also asked to comment on the proposed changes.
If these changes are accepted by the Council they will be sent to the AVMA Executive Board for final approval.
