CE CREDIT APPROVAL

 

Dear Colleagues: 

 

Thank you for requesting approval of Continuing Education credits.  The Board of Registration in Veterinary Medicine has designated MVMA, through our Continuing Education Accreditation Committee, to review CE proposals and determine the number of credits for which they qualify.

 

For more information on Continuing Education Requirements for veterinarians in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, please refer to the Regulations of the Board of Registration in Veterinary Medicine, which can be accessed by clicking here.

 

To ensure quality continuing education for veterinarians in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the MVMA Continuing Education Accreditation Committee requires all sponsoring entities to fill out an “Application for Credit for Veterinary Medical Continuing Education.” In addition to the completed application form, other required documentation includes:

  • a detailed description or detailed outline of the proposed program,
  • information about the speaker(s), including biographical data and credentials, as well as advanced training/CE and prior speaking engagements.  A curriculum vitae is preferred.
  • when sponsored by a for-profit entity or commercial interest, a "Continuing Education Disclosure Form."  This form is found toward the bottom of the CE Application form.

     

     

    1)  You may use the electronic form by clicking here.  We have added two fields to this form where you may cut and paste your speaker(s)'s curriculum vitae and the program details.

     

    or

     

    2) You may submit your application and all accompanying materials by sending them to CEreview@massvet.org. For a printed version of the form, click here.  

    To receive the Committee’s decision prior to the program, you must submit the application and all required materials at least 30 days prior to the proposed program date. For all other programs, call 508-460-9333 prior to submitting your application.

    Thank you for your request and your interest in helping keep Massachusetts veterinarians current in their education. Please contact the MVMA office if you have any questions.  We look forward to learning more about your proposed program.

     

    Sincerely,
