Veterinary Medical Ethics (4 hours)

Increase ethical literacy and decrease moral stress

   A Preview of the Course

The primary objective of this course is to enhance your ethical literacy. We will identify resources to support clinical ethical decision-making; compare and contrast legal and ethical duties; and review case scenarios to help inform strategies for problem solving that decrease moral stress and improve the well-being of veterinary professionals and their patients. This course has been approved for 4 hours of continuing education credit in jurisdictions that recognize RACE and VHMA approval.

I highly recommend the Veterinary Medical Ethics course. I found the course to be educational and thought provoking. Participation will help the student to better understand and cope with the ethical/moral stress inherent in veterinary practice, thereby leading to increased job satisfaction. This is a course that will benefit veterinarians at all stages of their careers.
