Council of Education accepting applications for site visitors

The Council on Education (COE) is now accepting applications for veterinarians interested in serving as COE Site Visitors. Applicants who are engaged in private clinical practice or non-academic practice are encouraged to apply.

Site visitors will conduct veterinary medical college accreditation site visits on behalf of the COE. The site visitors will carefully review the Self-Study from the institution under review, verify the information during a comprehensive site visit of the institution, and submit a report to the COE for its consideration. Site visitors will make recommendations to the COE, but will not attend COE meetings, discuss findings, or otherwise participate in accreditation decisions.

All site visitors will receive training prior to participating in site visits and must be available for the 2017 training session. Training will be held in Schaumburg, Illinois on September 22-24, 2017.

The deadline for receipt of applications for site visitor candidates is June 15, 2017. The application form and a more detailed description of the responsibilities of Site Visitors and the application process are available on the AVMA website.

Completed application packets should be emailed to [email protected], faxed to (847) 925-0944, or mailed to AVMA Office of the Executive Vice President, 1931 N. Meacham Rd, Suite 100, Schaumburg, IL, 60173.
