California Temporary License Curriculum

Western University of Health Sciences

309 E. Second Street College of Veterinary Medicine

Pomona, CA 91766



General Course Information

The California Temporary License Curriculum (CaTLC) is specifically designed to meet or exceed the requirements of California laws governing veterinary licensure in California. The California Veterinary Medicine Practice Act covers the requirements for veterinarians licensed in other states, Canadian provinces, or United States territories and wishing to become licensed in California via the reciprocity process. These requirements are covered in:

BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONAL CODE; DIVISION 2. Healing Arts; CHAPTER 11, Veterinary Medicine; ARTICLE 3, Issuance of Licenses; § 4848. Examination requirements; Waver; Temporary license; Extension of temporary license

CALIFORNIA CODE OF REGULATIONS; TITLE 16. Professional and Vocational Regulations; DIVISION 20. Veterinary Medical Board; ARTICLE 2.5, Temporary Licenses; § 2021.3. California Curriculum—Content

This continuing education program provides an extensive overview of regionally important diseases in California and the unique aspects of practicing of veterinary medicine in the state. It meets or exceeds the requirements of the California Curriculum (CALIFORNIA CODE OF REGULATIONS; TITLE 16. Professional and Vocational Regulations; DIVISION 20. Veterinary Medical Board; ARTICLE 2.5, Temporary Licenses; § 2021.3. California Curriculum—Content) (http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/ccr.htm) for “qualified veterinarians” to obtain a permanent veterinary license in California via reciprocity. Please contact the California Veterinary Medical Board (www.vmb.ca.gov) for requirements to be considered a “qualified veterinarian” and information on all of the required items to complete the process.

A copy of the 2018 California Veterinary Medicine Practice Act will be available shortly after the start of 2018 at: https://store.lexisnexis.com/products/california-veterinary-medicine-practice-act-skuSKU50651/details (copy and paste the link into your web browser).

Veterinarians who wish to become licensed in California under the BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONAL CODE are required to complete the entire course. This is strictly enforced through mandatory presentation of state issued photo identification or passport as well as daily sign-in and sign-out verification and/or name badge scan. Absence from any portion of the curriculum for any reason will be considered an absence and certificate hours will be deducted accordingly; thus, not meeting the requirements set forth in the BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONAL CODE. The course provides 26.5 hours of continuing education credits over three days.

This program 253-31688 is approved by the AAVSB RACE to offer a total of 27.00 CE Credits (27.00 max) being available to any one veterinarian: and/or 0.00 Veterinary Technician CE Credits (0.00 max). This RACE approval is for the subject matter categories of: Category One: Scientific, Category Three: Non-Scientific-Practice Management/ Professional Development using the delivery method of Seminar/Lecture. This approval is valid in jurisdictions which recognize AAVSB RACE; however, participants are responsible for ascertaining each board's CE requirements. RACE does not "accredit" or "endorse" or "certify" any program or person, nor does RACE approval validate the content of the program.



Course Topics

Topics covered in the CaTLC include those mandated in the CALIFORNIA CODE OF REGULATIONS (http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/ccr.htm), specifically TITLE 16. Professional and Vocational Regulations; DIVISION 20. Veterinary Medical Board; ARTICLE 2.5, Temporary Licenses; § 2021.3. California Curriculum—Content. For the event, topics are organized in a manner designed to provide a flowing program arranged by species (please see the agenda).

BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONS CODE

§ 4848. Examination requirements; Waiver; Temporary license; Extension of temporary license

§ 4848.(b)(5) The applicant completes an approved educational curriculum on regionally specific and important diseases and conditions. The board, in consultation with the California Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA), shall approve educational curricula that cover appropriate regionally specific and important diseases and conditions that are common in California. The curricula shall focus on small and large animal diseases consistent with the current proportion of small and large animal veterinarians practicing in the state. The approved curriculum shall not exceed 30 hours of educational time. The approved curriculum may be offered by multiple providers so that it is widely accessible to candidates licensed under this subdivision.




Health Certificate Accreditation

The USDA and CDFA will provide an overview of the National Veterinary Accreditation Program (NVAP) at the CaTLC. Non-accredited veterinarians who attend the CaTLC and want to be accredited in California must first complete the Initial Accreditation Training (IAT) then attend an Orientation Program. Veterinarians currently accredited in another state must complete a State-Specific (supplemental) Orientation to be authorized (accredited) in California. To start the IAT, register for an Orientation Program, or State-Specific Orientation, please contact the National Veterinary Accreditation Program Coordinator for California, Todd Carnes, at the Sacramento Area Office at 916-854-3903 or Todd.D.Carnes@aphis.usda.gov. Additional accreditation information can be found at the USDA, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, Veterinary Services (Animal Health) website (https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/ourfocus/animalhealth/nvap), and clicking on the “Veterinary Accreditation” link on the left side of the page.

NVAP Orientation

During the USDA-APHIS-VS presentation at the CaTLC, Dr. Ewey, Director of Service Center 6, will review the Veterinary Services reorganization to assist practitioners in contacting the proper office for issues pertaining to animal movement, foreign and other animal disease issues, and animal disease traceability. He will also provide an overview of the National Veterinary Accreditation Program (NVAP), including the difference between Category I and Category II Accreditation, how to become accredited or authorized in CA and the requirements and timelines for renewal. Finally, Dr. Ewey will provide an overview of the interstate and international movement processes and Veterinary Services progress toward the acceptance and implementation of digital signatures and electronic certification. The presentation during CaTLC DOES NOT fulfill the Orientation requirement for accreditation.

The NVAP California Orientation is the initial comprehensive seminar, which outlines the components of the accreditation program and the standards to which accredited veterinarians will be held. The following subject areas are included in the California Orientation:

  1. Federal animal health laws, regulations, and rules;
  2. Interstate movement of animals;
  3. Import and export requirements for animals;
  4. USDA animal disease eradication and control programs;
  5. Laboratory support in confirming disease diagnoses;
  6. Ethical/professional standards for an accredited veterinarian;
  7. Foreign animal disease awareness;
  8. Animal health emergency management;
  9. Animal health procedures, issues, and information resources relevant to California
  10. Assistance in completing the VS 1-36A (NVAP Application Form)
