How the ABVMA serves you
The Alberta Veterinary Medical Association is responsible for ensuring that all veterinarians in the province are qualified to practice veterinary medicine. The primary mandate of the Association is to ensure that the public is receiving quality veterinary service. This is accomplished through a number of initiatives with the following areas of focus:
- Reviewing the academic, personal and ethical qualifications of all veterinarians applying for a license to practice in Alberta.
- Requiring that veterinarians continually upgrade their skills by attending a minimum number of continuing education sessions each year.
- Inspecting all veterinary clinics in the province to ensure they meet or exceed ABVMA standards.
- Providing a process for the resolution of complaints by intervening and investigating complaints lodged against the conduct or skills of Alberta veterinarians.
