Founded and maintained by local veterinarians, the Tarrant County Veterinary Association (TCVMA) serves as official assembly of veterinarians in Tarrant County Texas. The purpose of TCVMA is to:
- Promote quality relations between the veterinary profession and the public
- Maintain outstanding veterinary practices and professional ethics
- Preserve high standards in the hospitalization, care and treatment of pets and domestic animals
- Educate members of their responsibilities to the livestock industry, to public health and to the nation’s welfare
- Provide continuing education to Tarrant County veterinarians through planned programs and scheduled seminars
One of the primary missions of TCVMA is to provide continuing education opportunities to its members. The State of Texas requires that all veterinaries participate in at lease 17 hours of continuing education in order to maintain their licenses to practice.
For TCVMA, these continuing education opportunities are provided in monthly meetings where guest speakers are scheduled to inform and educate on current veterinary practices and subjects. The TCVMA continuing education meetings are usually held on the third Thursday of each month at the University of North Texas Health Science Center in Fort Worth. Please check the calendar for specific dates and times.
