Would you like to help advance the quality of veterinary medical education? The AVMA Council on Education® (AVMA COE®) is preparing to train new college site visitors in 2024, and now is your chance to apply.
Applications are due January 15, 2024, from veterinarians interested in becoming a veterinary college site visitor.
Site visitors review a college’s self-study, verify its information during a comprehensive visit to the college, and submit a report to the AVMA COE®. They make recommendations to the council but do not attend council meetings, discuss findings, or otherwise participate in accreditation decisions.
The AVMA COE® provides training to all site visitors before they begin taking part in site visits. Anyone who applies during the current application period must be available for the 2024 training session, which will be held September 20-22, 2024, in Schaumburg, Illinois.
Veterinarians engaged in all facets of veterinary medicine are encouraged to apply. The work performed by site visitors is integral to the AVMA COE’s ongoing process of accrediting and reviewing the education provided by veterinary medical colleges.
