Western University of Health Sciences College of Veterinary Medicine Accreditation and Outcomes Assessment

In May 2013, The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Council on Education (COE) granted Full Accreditation to the College of Veterinary Medicine for the maximum allowed term of seven years.  The COE is the only recognized accrediting agency for colleges of veterinary medicine in the U.S. and Canada. The next AVMA COE site visit will occur in 2019. 

The final pass rate for the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLE) for Western University of Health Sciences’ College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) students from the Class of 2013 was 96%. The final pass rate required by the AVMA COE is presently 80%.
