Registry of Approved Continuing Education

RACE Continuing Education 

Maddie's Fund® is proud to offer continuing education for veterinary professionals through our RACE approved webcasts (live and on-demand).

The Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE) is one of the four key programs provided by the American Association of Veterinary State Boards (AAVSB). The purpose of the RACE program is to develop and apply uniform standards related to providers and programs of continuing education in veterinary medicine.

RACE-approved continuing veterinary education (CE) consists of educational activities that serve to maintain, develop or increase the knowledge, skills and professional performance and relationships that a veterinary professional uses to provide services for patients, the public or the profession.
