American Veterinarian Medical Association


An article in the April 15, 2010, issue of JAVMA indicated incorrectly that veterinarians who are currently accredited by the Department of Agriculture would be required to participate in education modules if they allow their accreditation to expire under the existing system, which ends Aug. 2. At press time, the USDA was still developing protocols for veterinarians who allow their existing accreditation to expire. Under the new tiered system, veterinarians will need to meet supplemental training and renewal requirements beginning in the next three to five years.
