Explore the governance structure behind AOVET

How is AOVET governance structured?

The International Board manages the clinical division strategically on a global level and the four regional boards (Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and North America) are responsible for all educational activities on a local level.

The AOVET commissions (Education, Community Development, and R&D) are responsible for establishing standards, coordinating and leveraging ideas, and ensuring best practices.
