In July 2011, the AVMA House of Delegates (HOD) passed Resolution #5, Formation of Foreign Accreditation Task Force. This resolution recommended that the AVMA Executive Board form a task force to perform a peer review of the accreditation of foreign veterinary schools, addressing the impact of the AVMA Council on Education (COE) procedure and the consequences of this program on the veterinary profession in the United States, and the quality of standards for the veterinary profession in the United States.

The task torce’s final report (PDF) was received by the AVMA Executive Board at its April 2013 meeting.
