I agree that the Association should reaffirm its acceptance of a leadership role in international veterinary medicine. If it's not broken don't try to fix it. The current method of accreditation and certification of foreign vet grads is very strict and has a proven track record of working.

The US Dept. of Education has designated the AVMA as the accrediting body for veterinary education/schools. Which I believe, in general, is appropriate and I believe the AMA plays a similar function.
That being said, I also believe them to be a very political body and not always acting in the best interests of the profession as a whole. I think it should be inevitable that Ross or SGU will ultimately be AVMA accredited. They've been throwing money towards this goal for some time now. Whether it'll happen or not remains to be seen and I've lost interest since I've completed the ECFVG and am licensable anywhere.
