The objective of the three-year combined residency program is to provide advanced training in veterinary emergency and critical care medicine. The residency is designed to meet training requirements for certification in the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care (ACVECC). All residents must be accepted and enrolled in the Graduate School. Graduate work leading to a Master of Science degree in Clinical Sciences will be completed during the residency.


The goals of the program are to develop a resident with a broad knowledge of emergency medicine, critical care and related disciplines. The training is obtained through patient care, teaching rounds, seminars, graduate courses and clinical research. In the majority of cases, residents will assume primary case responsibility with a senior clinician as advisor.
