American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA)

From CatDori

Jump to: navigation, search

The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) is the chief organization representing U.S. veterinarians. One of its key responsibilities is in accrediting veterinary schools. Typically, to practice in the United States a veterinarian must be graduated from one of the accredited veterinary schools, or take an additional year-long internship and pass the Educational Commission for Foreign Veterinary Graduates (ECFVG) exam.

As of July 2009, the AVMA had accredited, at least provisionally, 42 veterinary schools located in eight countries. Most of the veterinary schools (28) are located in the United States, but the remaining 14 are located in seven countries, as follows: five in Canada, three in Australia, two in Scotland, and one each in England, Ireland, the Netherlands, and New Zealand. A full list of AVMA accredited veterinary colleges is available here.
