AVMA Launches Online CE

The AVMA Ed will launch on the 1st of December, providing further online education opportunities.

The American Veterinary Medical Assn. will launch AVMA Ed on Dec. 1 in response to an increased demand for online continuing education opportunities.

The association announced the new member service in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association.

“Veterinary medicine is continually evolving,” AVMA Executive Vice President W. Ron DeHaven, DVM, told JAVMA. “The public is demanding more sophisticated care. Online CE is another way to provide veterinarians an opportunity to advance their education, stay abreast of new knowledge in the profession and take advantage of new technology.”

Content will come from the AVMA Annual Convention, JAVMA and the association’s other publication, the American Journal of Veterinary Research.

Registered participants can browse the website for free. However, a credit card payment is needed to view all the offerings and take an examination. AVMA members receive a discount and student AVMA members have free access. Also, one free course will be offered to every user through Dec. 31.

The website will include convention presentations, speaker biographies and notes. Two to three articles from each issue of the JAVMA will be available, beginning with the Oct. 1 issue.

Participants can earn one hour of CE credit after successfully completing a five-question test following a review of the online presentation or article.

AVMA Ed is a valuable resource for the general public, allied health professionals and foreign licensees and their institutions, JAVMA reported. Topics include small animal veterinary medicine, bovine medicine, equine medicine, animal welfare, animal behavior, practice management, oncology, dentistry, neurology, swine medicine and aquatic animal medicine.


One thought on “AVMA Launches Online CE

  1. In my opinion the focus of CE needs to move from awarding CE credits for exposure to awarding CE credits by proof of proficiency. Things like pre and post CE testing, beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels of CE with completion of the previous level required for non boarded individuals. Additional training opportunities, on line courses, webinars,etc. should be made known to course participants at the time of the post CE testing process. There should be a brief period of time between the CE presentation and the post test to evaluate retention.
