The American Veterinary Medical Association Council on Education is seeking input through a survey on the validity and reliability of the 11 Standards of Accreditation. The council uses the standards to assess the educational quality provided by veterinary medical colleges and their ability to produce entry level veterinarians. Accredited colleges must comply with each standard to maintain accredited status. In order to assure that the Standards of Accreditation remain relevant to the needs of students in colleges/schools of veterinary medicine and to veterinary practitioners, the validity and reliability of the standards is assessed periodically. Information gathered by the survey will be reviewed by the Council on Education. Thank you for taking the time to help improve the accreditation process.
