American College of Veterinary Emergency & Critical Care
    Continuing Education

    Whether you are a resident-in-training or a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Emergency Critical Care, you likely need to obtain a certain number of veterinary continuing education (CE) credits per year. This is necessary to maintain credentials and to abide by state requirements (which may vary by state).

    While ACVECC does not endorse one specific conference or CE source, you can find numerous resources throughout the world. Most importantly, make sure the CE meets the requirements as approved by the Standards and Guidelines/Residency Training Committee or the veterinary regulatory agency for your state.

    The Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE) found at the American Association of Veterinary State Boards (AAVSB) provides a list of providers and programs. Please note that RACE-approved CE is recognized by most AAVSB member boards; however, you should verify recognition with your board and be aware that some boards have limitations on the number of hours accepted in certain categories and/or restrictions on certain methods of delivery of CE (e.g., passive CE, online CE, etc.).

    Howdy educators!

    Some of you be doing research or have some insights into euthanasia, slaughter, or depopulation. If so, please see the note below and submit your abstracts. This is a unique and stimulating symposium:

    Call for Abstracts  has been issued for the 2023 Humane Endings Symposium. We would appreciate it if you would bring this to the attention of people or groups who might wish to contribute.

    Abstracts should clearly relate to euthanasia, humane slaughter, depopulation, harmonization of voluntary guidance and regulations for these activities, or the psychological impacts of humane endings. Examples of submissions of interest include recent research findings; direct personal experience in performing these activities; and lessons learned, reviews of research in a defined area; discussions of voluntary or regulatory oversight; and efforts or methods for harmonizing recommendations, nationally and internationally.

    More information regarding the 2023 Symposium and Call for Abstracts can be found by following the link below:

    If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact

    Hope you are having a good week and thank you,
