What is a Veterinary Specialist?

Veterinary specialists are veterinarians who have advanced training in various veterinary medical and surgical disciplines and are Board-certified. To become Board-certified, a veterinarian must have completed, at a minimum, four years of veterinary college, a one year internship or equivalent, and two to three years in a residency program that meets the standards of a recognized specialty college or board. There are additional training and caseload requirements that must be met during the residency and finally, to become an ACVIM Diplomate the veterinarian must pass a series of rigorous examinations.
