What is a specialist?

A veterinary specialist, as recognized by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), is a graduate veterinarian who has successfully completed the process of board certification in an AVMA-recognized veterinary specialty organization (ie, board or college). To become board certified, a veterinarian must have extensive post-graduate training and experience (internships and residencies) and pass a credential review and examinations set by the given specialty organization.
