About Board Certification

A specialist in emergency critical care is a specially trained veterinarian dedicated to treating life-threatening conditions. Board certification requires extensive additional training, which strongly influences the veterinarian's expertise in treating patients.

After receiving the VMD or DVM degree, a specialist must:
  • Receive a minimum (or equivalent) of three additional years of intense training in emergency, surgery and critical care through completion of an American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care (ACVECC)-approved training program.
  • Once the veterinarian has completed these years of specialty residency training, the individual must then pass a tough board -certification examination given by the ACVECC.

Upon successful completion of the training and passing of the examination, the veterinarian is a Diplomate of the ACVECC, is termed a “specialist”, and is board-certified in veterinary emergency and critical care.
