The 2017 NEDPMS is approved by the AAVSB RACE to offer a total of 19.00 CE Credits (19.00 max) being available to any one veterinarian. This RACE approval is for the subject matter categories of:
Category One: Scientific using the delivery method of Seminar/Lecture.
This approval is valid in jurisdictions which recognize AAVSB RACE; however, participants are responsible for ascertaining each board's CE requirements. RACE does not "accredit" or "endorse" or "certify" any program or person, nor does RACE approval validate the content of the program.
A lot of information was shared and a lot fun was had at the symposium this year! Mark your calendars, the 2018 NEDPMS will be at the DoubleTree Hotel, East Syracuse, NY on March 23-25.
