WASHINGTON, D.C., April 5, 2022 —The American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) is pleased to welcome University of Liverpool as a Provisional Member. The University of Liverpool Institute of Veterinary Science has two on-site working farms as well as two referral hospitals, and three first opinion practices, enabling undergraduates to gain valuable direct experience of all aspects of veterinary practice.

“AAVMC is excited for the addition of the University of Liverpool as a Provisional member which adds the expansion of our global service footprint” says Dr. Andrew T. Maccabe, CEO of AAVMC. Dr. Paul Lunn, the new veterinary dean at the University of Liverpool, stated “We are delighted to join the AAVMC community, and the opportunities this brings for expanding our programs and collaborations.”

Provisional Membership is available for any college or school of veterinary medicine which grants the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree or equivalent but is not yet accredited by or gained “reasonable assurance” from the Council on Education (COE). Many schools seek provisional membership status as they go through the process of accreditation and can benefit from the value of membership gained through the AAVMC.

Membership in AAVMC provides members with a voice in the advancement of veterinary medicine and expertise in admissions management, academic veterinary research, clinical programs and training, curricula and diversity issues, institutional data and analysis, leadership development and more.

The member institutions of the American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) promote and protect the health and wellbeing of people, animals, and the environment by advancing the profession of veterinary medicine and preparing new generations of veterinarians to meet the evolving needs of a changing world. Founded in 1966, the AAVMC represents more than 40,000 faculty, staff, and students across the global academic veterinary medical community. Our member institutions include Council on Education (COE) accredited veterinary medical colleges and schools in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Europe, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand as well as departments of veterinary science and departments of comparative medicine in the U.S.
