This page is designed to provide resources and guidance documents on self-reporting impairment and adverse events in the practice of veterinary medicine.
In accordance with O.C.G.A. 43-50-21.1, the Georgia State Board of Veterinary Medicine has contracted with the Georgia Professionals Health Program (GaPHP) to conduct a professional health program for veterinarians who may suffer from any condition that impairs their judgment or would otherwise adversely affect their ability to safely practice veterinary medicine. Visit the Georgia Professionals Health Program (GaPHP) website for more information concerning the program and how they can help.
If you want to self-report a condition that may adversely affect your ability to practice safely and you do not wish to enroll and/or are ineligible for enrollment in the Georgia Professionals Health Program (GaPHP), please download and complete a Self-Report Packet. Once complete, the Self-Report Packet and any supplemental documents should be submitted to the board office by email in a PDF format to [email protected], or by mail to the Georgia State Board of Veterinary Medicine, 237 Coliseum Drive, Macon, Georgia 31217.
The purpose of the Adverse Event Decision Pathway tool is to assist Georgia veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and their employers with evaluating adverse events involving persons licensed by the Georgia State Board of Veterinary Medicine. The tool may also assist in determining the best course of action to take, including but not limited to reporting the event to the Board, to mitigate risks to the licensee and the public.
