Recognized Certificate Programs
The Recognized Certificate Programs (RCP) of ABVP were established to provide an alternate path for fulfilling the requirements necessary to submit credentials and be accepted to sit for the certifying examination. An RCP meets the general eligibility criteria for ABVP certification.
The objective of ABVP pre-approved RCP’s is to promote expertise and proficiency in species-specialty veterinary medicine by providing in-depth education and training while continuing to work in private practice associated with that desired recognized veterinary specialty (RVS).
An ABVP RCP will consist of a minimum of three years of program participation and concurrent participation in clinical practice in the RVS.
