Summary (continued)
The American Veterinary Medical Association Council on Education has classified the 597 VMAIs into ‘accredited’ (n = 49; 8.2%), ‘listed’ (n = 468; 78.4%) and ‘unlisted’ (n = 80; 13.4%) categories. The diversity of nomenclature of VMAIs, degrees, curricula and training status of veterinary graduates may affect the globalisation of VME according to the ‘One Health’ concept. Veterinary medical professionals and international organisations must think creatively about the future of global VME, especially with regard to the standardisation of the nomenclature of institutions, degrees, professional associations and core curricula, to contribute effectively to biomedical sciences and One Health at the national and global levels.
