To have your attendance at the conference recognised for Vet Ed points you must include your AVA membership number when registering for the conference for automatic awarding of the points to your Vet Ed statement.
Delegates can earn extra points by attending one of the post-conference workshops and field trips, or by completing trials at the National Veterinary Examination stand.
VetEd points correct at the time of printing, however points are subject to change without notice.
Many veterinarians trained overseas are required to sit the National Veterinary Examination to check that they are of the same standard as those trained in Australia and New Zealand.
Throughout the conference, the Australasian Veterinary Boards Council (AVBC) is asking Australian vets to trial some questions to enable them to collate data to determine their suitability for the examination.
Note: One (1) CE point is available for each set of questions completed. Trialling is anonymous.
Help AVBC maintain the high standard of veterinary practice in Australia.
