Hybrid Credentials Pathway

Hybrid Credentials Pathway

The Hybrid Credentials Pathway (HCP) of ABVP was established to provide an alternate path for fulfilling the requirements necessary to submit credentials and be accepted to sit for the certifying examination. An HCP meets the general eligibility criteria for ABVP certification.

The objective of ABVP pre-approved HCP’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 HCP will consist of a minimum of three years of program participation and concurrent participation in clinical practice in the RVS.
