The AAVSB has created a standard program for veterinary professionals who demonstrate their commitment to performing at the highest level – Veterinary Care Elite.
Veterinary Care Elite program members are role models for colleagues, highly regarded in their workplace, and sought after by practices looking to hire exemplary professionals. This program benefits the broader veterinary community by identifying those that meet the greatest standards of achievement.
By enrolling in Veterinary Care Elite, veterinary technicians agree to maintaining the highest standard of a veterinary professional, including:
Veterinary Care Elite program members distinguish themselves from other veterinary professionals by voluntarily achieving the highest standards set by the veterinary medicine regulatory community.
Once admitted to the program, veterinary technicians will receive a variety of additional service and program benefits such as:
Veterinary Care Elite is open to all credentialed veterinary technicians in all the AAVSB Member Board jurisdictions which regulate veterinary technicians and VTNE applicants who intend to be credentialed in those jurisdictions.
The cost to enroll in the program is $80 annually; VTNE applicants may enroll for $40 annually for two years when applying for membership in Veterinary Care Elite along with a VTNE application.
Please note: VTNE applicants will remain as “Veterinary Care Enrollee” status until passing the VTNE and becoming credentialed by an AAVSB Member Board. Once credentialed, their status will be upgraded to “Veterinary Care Elect.” Full “Veterinary Care Elite” status will be granted one year after becoming credentialed with no disciplinary actions
Our staff at the AAVSB will work cooperatively with the Member Boards to house all information regarding specific jurisdiction credentialing requirements. Creating this licensure repository will ease the burden of repetitive requests for basic information from the Member Boards and provide Member Boards access to the AAVSB’s new continuing education auditing service, RACEtrack.
Even more significantly, the program promotes the importance of public protection through proper, efficient regulation of veterinary professionals and honors our promise to support the entire veterinary community.
