I am definitely going home a vastly improved surgeon with much more to offer my patients and home clinic.
Private Vet Training Overview
We are delighted to be able to offer veterinarians an educational, hands-on experience that exposes them to the concentration of high-volume, high-quality spay/neuter. We're thrilled that this training program, based in Asheville, NC, has become so popular, with vets from all backgrounds, experience levels, and interests benefiting from the flexible scheduling, one-on-one tutoring, and Continuing Education Credit availability, not to mention the invaluable information they take home with them.
We are approved by the North Carolina Veterinary Medical Board to award continuing education credit (CEC) for participation in our in-house supervised surgery experience program. Michelle Amtower, DVM and Melissa Saxton, DVM have written the surgical sterilization curriculum, which has been edited by, and received positive reviews from, veterinarians at Cornell University, UT-Knoxville, University of Florida, and Texas A&M veterinary schools.
- Continuing education is held Monday through Thursday, with a flexible schedule of 1–4 days.
- Every hour trained (excluding breaks) will earn 1 CE credit.
- Participants will typically train for 6-7 hours per day.
Participants are responsible for contacting their own state veterinary boards to verify that CECs obtained from this course are accepted, preferably prior to attendance. We are not responsible for providing any other documentation about our program that is not listed on our website.
The Humane Alliance Private Vet Training program is not currently RACE-approved.
