Continuing Education in First Year of Licensure
The purpose of this bulletin is to offer guidance to Licensees regarding Continuing Education Requirements in First Year of Licensure
The Board of Registration in Veterinary Medicine Regulations 256 CMR 9.00 state the requirements for continuing education.
It is Board policy that all new licensees are exempt from the Continuing Education requirements for the license period that includes the date of initial licensure, unless the new license was obtained by reciprocity.
The Board does encourage new licensees to voluntarily take continuing education during their first year of licensure.
Authority: M.G.L. Chapter 112, Section 54; and 256 CMR 9.00
