You may recall us writing a few months back that we would be seeking your comments on the AVMA’s Model Veterinary Practice Act, a valuable resource for many veterinary state boards and state legislators when they look to revise their practice acts or when they have questions related to the practice of veterinary medicine.
Well, your time has come. Organizations and individuals can now make comments about the model practice act on the AVMA website. The 30-day comment period runs through Feb. 14, and we strongly urge you to participate in this process. We’re looking for specific suggestions you might have on how we might revise or update the model in order to help shape the future of veterinary medicine. We once again encourage you to review our model practice act and submit any updates you think are necessary. Your comments will be gathered and considered by an AVMA task force whose members will deliberate any proposed changes and make recommendations for any revisions to the AVMA Executive Board.
Thanks in advance for your valued participation.
