The Australasian Veterinary Boards Council (AVBC) serves its members and the public by:
Providing a forum for discussion, advice and co-operation among the veterinary boards in Australia and New Zealand
Encouraging the standardisation and quality assurance of veterinary services to the community
Assuring and promoting uniform educational standards through accreditation of veterinary schools, the Australasian Veterinary Examination, assessment of veterinary qualifications for migration and assessment of specialist qualifications.
The AVBC would not be able to operate without the constant dedication of its Council member representatives, standing committee members, veterinary board members, registrars, and everyone in-between. Since 2018 AVBC has recognised this support through the annual AVBC awards, which took place last year on 18th November 2021.
The AVBC has again been been working closely with the Australian Veterinary Association (AVA) and Veterinary Schools of Australia and New Zealand (VSANZ) to monitor the impacts of the COVID pandemic on veterinary education.
