Continuing Medical Education is Now Mandatory in Michigan 

Are you concerned about fulfilling the 2 new CME requirements on medical records and veterinary law?  MVMA has you covered!

One of the new requirements that may be more difficult to obtain is 1 hour of CE on medical records and 1 hour of CE on state veterinary law and/or federal or state-controlled substance laws. Learn More Here

If you'd like to take these courses in person . . .
MVC 2019 attendees will have access to a 1-hour session on Friday, January 25 from 4:20 - 5:10 pm covering medical records, with the second 1-hour session covering veterinary law taking place the following day, Saturday, January 26 from 7:30 - 8:30 am. Register now for the 2019 MVC!

Free sessions on these topics will also be done in conjunction with the small animal seminars. One of these sessions will occur from 8:30 - 9:30 am before each seminar begins and if you attend you’ll be provided with an extra CE certificate for these required courses. Register for the March or April SAS seminars here!

All in-person sessions will be presented by MVMA attorney Andrew J. Gordon, JD. Descriptions are as follows: 

Writing It Down: Legal Requirements for Veterinary Medical Records

The Basics of Veterinary Law: What You Need to Know to Protect Your License and Grow a Successful Practice
This session will survey current topics in veterinary law with an emphasis on the veterinary provisions of the Michigan Public Health Code to help you run a successful veterinary practice. Additional topics covered in this session will include organizing a veterinary business, establishing employment policies, and recent developments in the field of controlled substances regulation.

Or, if you'd rather take them online . . .
MVMA members have access to both a 1 and 2-hour Michigan-specific medical record keeping online training that satisfies the new CE requirements. These online courses can be taken at any time and are designed not only to fulfill the new requirements, but also to improve your efficiency at creating a legally defensible medical record, compliance with state, federal and other regulations, and strengthen client relationships.
