The Society for Veterinary Medical Ethics
The SVME has an active listerv, publishes a newsletter, holds plenary sessions with lectures and forums at the VMX annual convention and distributes information about recent relevant veterinary-ethics publications.
The SVME actively seeks to increase the knowledge and discussion of issues in veterinary ethics via the forum of the VETETHICS Listserv. The Listerv is monitored by members of the Editorial Review Committee to assure that a high standard of etiquette prevails during the discussion and debate of ehtical issues which may have inherent polarity.
A CE course in Basic Veterinary Medical Ethics for veterinarians and paraprofessionals is open for registration via the Events page. Registrants are required to have current standing as SVME members (student memberships are free). An SVME Certificate of Completion will be provided.
Although most SVME members are veterinarians, membership is not limited exclusively to veterinarians. SVME encourages all professionals who are interested in animal ethics and bioethics to apply for membership. The SVME welcomes interprofessional dialouge.
