LAKEWOOD, Colorado – April 30, 2019 – In a move that brings a veterinary industry leader in online CE together with the only association to accredit companion animal hospitals in North America, VetBloom and the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) are excited to announce the upcoming launch of the AAHA | Learning platform.
Provided as an exclusive AAHA member benefit, the new platform will be powered and hosted by VetBloom, a digital learning ecosystem from Ethos Veterinary Health (Ethos). At launch, it will include access to more than 50 hours of non-sponsored RACE-approved technical CE for veterinarians and technicians. But that’s only the start.
With courses available in a variety of formats ranging from interactive case-based learning modules and virtual simulations to podcasts, webinars, and more, VetBloom sets the industry standard for creating innovative and engaging content using cutting-edge learning technologies. The collaboration will open the door for AAHA to provide its own industry-leading educational resources to more than 4,400 accredited hospitals across Canada and the United States in fresh, relevant, and transformative ways.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with such an innovative and forward-thinking organization,” says AAHA Chief Executive Officer Michael Cavanaugh, DVM, DABVP (Emeritus). “VetBloom’s overall pedagogical approach combined with their aptitude for applying cutting-edge technologies in an easy-to-use and accessible manner makes them a true leader in the online learning space.”
ADDITIONAL AAHA | LEARNING PLATFORM BENEFITS INCLUDE:
- Continued access to high-quality existing AAHA CE, including AAHA’s guidelines
- The option to upgrade to a premium-level subscription that provides access to hundreds of hours of CE for veterinarians and technicians as well as state-of-the-art, advanced courses
- An easy-to-use, mobile-friendly interface and user experience that enables AAHA members to access their CE directly from their AAHA account
- Customer support directly through the knowledgeable AAHA team
While these benefits will be available when the platform launches, new feature additions will be ongoing and content updates will occur regularly.
“We’re tremendously excited to be partnering with an industry leading organization such as AAHA,” says VetBloom founder and Ethos Chief Knowledge Officer Patrick Welch, DVM, MBA, DACVO. “The AAHA and VetBloom teams share a passion for learning and growth, and this collaboration provides us with the opportunity to develop a learning ecosystem that makes a truly meaningful impact for the veterinary industry.”
The AAHA Learning platform will launch in July.
