Ethics and Content Validation Subcommittee (ECVSC)

The ECVSC is a standing subcommittee established by the EAB, consisting of one representative from each clinical division selected by their respective Education Committee. The ECVSC is responsible for ensuring all educational activities meet the criteria for accreditation and content is objective, fair balanced, scientifically based on best available evidence and without commercial bias or influence. The ECVSC serves as a resource to AO NA leadership, committees, faculty, and staff on regulatory issues, compliance or policy issues.
