The Veterinary Innovation Summit is approved for veterinary continuing education credits by the College of Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M University. A veterinarian may earn up to 17 hours of CE credit at the 2019 event. All program sessions during the following time periods can qualify for CE credit:
Friday, April 5: 9:15am – 5:00pm (up to 6 credit hours)
Saturday, April 6: 8:00am – 4:45pm (up to 7 credit hours)
Sunday, April 7: 8:00am – 1:00pm (up to 4 credit hours)
In order for veterinarians licensed in Texas to receive CE credits, we will have the following procedures in place. Each registrant will sign an attendance roster at the time of registration. Registrants will receive a preprinted checklist in their packets so that they may conveniently record which sessions they attend. Remember that in order to document attendance at the meeting in the case of an audit by TBVME, attendees must present both the CE certificate and the checklist. In order to be compliant with the regulations of the TBVME, we may not distribute certificates prior to the end of VIS or until the registrant is leaving VIS.
Don’t forget to pick up your CE certificate before you leave! For veterinarians licensed in Texas, certificates mailed to participants before or after the completion of the program are not proof of attendance.
