21 Jun AVMA Council On Education Looking For Site Visitors
The Council on Education (COE) is now accepting applications for veterinarians interested in serving as Council on Education site visitors. A limited number of site visitors will be trained in 2018. Applicants who are engaged in private clinical practice, especially in mixed, equine, or food animal 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 2018 training session. Training will be held in Schaumburg, Illinois on September 21-23, 2018.
The deadline for receipt of applications for Site Visitor candidates is June 29, 2018. The application form and a more detailed description of the responsibilities of Site Visitors and the application process are available HERE on the AVMA website.
Completed application packets should be emailed to OfficeEVP@avma.org, faxed to (847) 925-0944, or mailed to AVMA Office of the Executive Vice President, 1931 N. Meacham Rd, Suite 100, Schaumburg, IL, 60173.
Please feel free to contact OfficeEVP@avma.org with any questions. We look forward to receiving your applications!
