The great news: You’ve made the decision to become AAHA accredited! The not-so-great-news: You have no idea where to start.

AAHA accreditation is a great way to demonstrate your commitment to the highest standards in veterinary medicine—but it takes hard work, dedication, and a supportive team to get there. Fortunately, AAHA’s Member Experience (MX) Team is well-versed in all things accreditation and here to support you on every step of your journey to becoming an AAHA-accredited Champion for Excellent Care.

Ready to dive in? Check out our Accreditation How-To Guide, an online workbook that takes you through the evaluation process one step at a time and provides all the resources you might need along the way, including:

  • Rule-out questions to customize your accreditation experience
  • Tips and tricks to help your practice meet the mandatory standards
  • Timelines and task lists to motivate and involve the entire team
  • Written protocol samples that can be used as guidelines to update or create your own
  • Games and activities to prepare your team for the evaluation (and have fun doing it)
  • An FAQ to answer your most pressing questions about what to expect on the big day
