Level and Prerequisites:
course provides structured week-by-week instruction
to help NAVLE® candidates stay on track to complete exam preparation
in an efficient and effective manner.
This course is geared toward senior veterinary students and veterinarians
preparing for the North American Veterinary Licensing Exam (NAVLE®).
VIN CE Course:
Open to senior veterinary students and
veterinarians preparing for the North American Veterinary Licensing Exam
(NAVLE®). This course does not qualify for AAVSB RACE approval.
Organized by species, each Real Time Session will highlight the "Top 20"
diseases and conditions encountered by practitioners in the U.S. and Canada.
All Real Time Sessions will include multiple-choice questions similar to
those that candidates will encounter on the NAVLE®. The questions will
lead to a brief discussion and summary of each condition in a distilled format.
We will cover NAVLE® study plans and exam strategies and provide
strategies for reviewing topics not covered in the "Top 20s."
The last session will include a mock examination.
This course consists of seven (7) 2-hour Real Time Sessions, supplemental library materials,
and interactive message board discussions.
Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to
- guidance on NAVLE® preparation, test-taking strategies,
and best study materials.
- a weekly live review covering a wide selection of
- the opportunity to interact with other NAVLE® candidates
and professors in class and on the message boards.
- weekly practice in answering one-best-answer multiple-choice
questions in a timed format.
- access to boarded clinicians for expert real-time assistance.
Course materials will be available
in the course library prior to each Real Time Session.
Required Textbook(s): There is no required textbook for this course.

of participant questions posted. Participants are not required to stay late
