Small Animal ACVIM Exam

This is the small animal section of the ACVIM boards exam reading list.


Candidates are advised to prepare for the examination by a systematic review of recent textbooks and periodicals. Your mentors can help you select appropriate study material. WE CANNOT DEFINE CONCLUSIVELY THE BODY OF KNOWLEDGE NECESSARY TO PASS THIS EXAMINATION – THE FOLLOWING LIST IS ONLY A GUIDELINE. Please note that although the emphasis of the examination is on recently (within the past 5 years, approximately) published literature, there are not set years that absolutely define which references are used for question preparation.
