Soon after the establishment of our Cooperative Veterinary Education Program, VNJ began working to have our veterinary education evaluated by international veterinary education evaluation organizations, such as the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education (EAEVE), to ensure that our veterinary education program is internationally acceptable by the standard of Europe and the United States. In December 2019, the veterinary education program conducted by VNJ received full accreditation by EAEVE. In December 2019, the Cooperative Veterinary Education Program received full accreditation by EAEVE. Simultaneously, Yamaguchi University and Kagoshima University Joint Faculty of Veterinary Medicine also fully accredited by EAEVE. This accreditation means that our veterinary education has been recognized as an internationally acceptable program by the standard of Europe and the United States. This is the first step in overcoming a problem that we have long been worrying “Veterinary education system in Japan is too small to reach the standard of Europe and the United States”. We are the first veterinary schools in Japan and the first in Asia to be accredited by EAEVE. During this period, we have been working to enhance clinical education in particular, and have introduced a quality assurance system involving stakeholders such as students and external experts to establish an educational system that allows for autonomous and continuous improvement. Graduating from an EAEVE accredited school does not mean that graduates will be able to work as a veterinarian in Europe or the United States. However, we believe that the EAEVE accreditation and its continuation will undoubtedly provide our students with a higher quality of veterinary education and veterinary training than ever before.
