Why an ABVP Residency?

The sequence to be used:
(1) a rotating internship or a minimum of one year of practice
(2) a two or three year ABVP approved residency training program in the RVS

The ABVP Residency Handbook has instruction and guidance for clinical practice disciplines in the species related areas.
