WASHINGTON, D.C, March 23, 2022 – The American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) is pleased to welcome University of Nottingham as a provisional member. The School of Veterinary Science and Medicine at University of Nottingham, based in the United Kingdom, welcomes 300+ students annually.

“AAVMC is looking forward to providing academic value, expertise and strengthening faculty relationships with the University of Nottingham as a provisional member,” says Dr. Andrew T. Maccabe, CEO of AAVMC.

Professor Gary England, dean of the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science, says, “We are delighted to be joining AAVMC as a provisional member. We are looking forward to benefitting from the expertise of other members, and in sharing our experiences of delivering a community-based clinical educational model over the last 12 years.”

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.
