CE Accreditation & Certificates

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:

  • Attendees will scan their credential to “check-in” for CE at the time of registration.
  • Attendees will receive a preprinted checklist in their packets so that they may conveniently record which sessions they attend.
  • In order to document attendance at the meetings in case of an audit by Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners (TBVME), attendees must present BOTH the CE certificate and the session checklist.
  • In accordance with the regulations of the TBVME, we may not distribute certificates prior to the end of VIS or until the attendee is leaving the event.

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.
