Continuing Education

MVMA CE program

The MVMA expects its members to maintain and extend their knowledge and skills throughout their professional career.  Accordingly, each licensed member must obtain 30 hours of continuing education (CE) credit hours each 24-month period.

CE is defined as a scientific or non-scientific program that can be justified to be within the scope of your veterinary practice.

Many different activities are eligible for CE credit. Each member must consider which CE activities are most appropriate for professional growth and competence. Below you will find types of CE that eligible for credit.

Each member will determine if his/her CE courses meet the MVMA’s CE definition as well as the number of eligible CE hours. This is defined in the MVMA Continuing Education Policies (below).
