AVMA accreditation hearing goes according to form
Federal government hears from critics, supporters on role of AVMA Council on Education.
The U.S. Department of Education conducted a full morning of hearings on December 11 to determine whether the American Veterinary Medical Association’s Council on Education (COE) should continue to serve as the accrediting body for veterinary colleges in the United States.
Supporters and critics alike voiced their views, and the department’s accreditation commission affirmed the continued role for the COE. Internal adjustments continue to be required of the COE, which will report back to the Department of Education at six- and 12-month intervals.
