What is Veritas e-Learning?


Veritas e-Learning provides digital online courses created by Cornell University and Texas A&M for veterinarians, veterinary students and veterinary technicians. Veritas's e-Learning courses have been designed specifically for online delivery incorporating interactive exercises to engage users and enhance the learning process.  Most computers with access to the Internet can access online courses delivered via a web browser, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Apple Safari, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.


Are Veritas courses available in languages other than English?


Not at this time, but there are plans for multi-lingual offerings in the future.  Stay tuned!


I see that Zoetis is involved…are all of the courses about their products?

No. The course content on Veritas has been created by the University partners and has undergone peer review. The courses on Veritas are free of any commercial bias or influence.

The Veritas partnership (Cornell, Texas A&M & Zoetis) recognized that the knowledge base that drives veterinary medicine continues to evolve and expand and therefore, veterinarians and veterinary paraprofessionals need access to high-quality continuing education programs throughout their careers.

Veritas will help address this need by providing practitioners with unique opportunities to stay current with the latest discoveries in veterinary medicine, hone their clinical skills, incorporate current medical advances into decisions that affect patient care, and build more profitable practices. Many Veritas courses will be offered for certified Continuing Education (CE) credit for veterinarians and licensed veterinary technicians to maintain their current licensure.

Zoetis is proud to be a part of the Veritas partnership and maintains its commitment to veterinarians through this and many other endeavors.

Can I stop and start a course multiple times?

How are exams and tests scored and their results recorded?


Exams consist of objective, multiple-choice questions. Exams are computer-graded and results are available immediately. Results are stored permanently by the Veritas Learning Management System (LMS) and are available any time a person logs in, and can be provided to any requesting state agency .


What is the passing score on a required assessment?


Typically, the passing score required to receive CE credit is 70%.  Learners will be notified in the Course Details if there is a different passing criterion for a course module. 


How are CE credits issued, approved, and tracked?


All courses are approved or in the process of being approved by RACE and the North Carolina Veterinary Medical Board.  Veritas is a New York State approved sponsor of continuing education for veterinarians and licensed veterinary technicians.  Participants should be aware that some state boards have limitations on the number of hours accepted in certain categories and/or restrictions on certain methods of delivery. 

Veritas will provide individuals with certificates of module and/or course completion.  If requested, Veritas will provide a complete list of individuals successfully completing a module to a requesting accrediting state board:  Records are kept for 6 years in case of possible state boards audits.   Please call Patricia Fehl of MEDtrak Educational Services at (610) 892-3000 for further information.
