Loh – Advanced Aquatic Credentials-ANZCVS.pdf

Presented by Dr Richmond Loh (BSc, BVMS, MPhil, MANZCVS, CertAqV) at NOVICE International Conference, October 4-5, 2012. Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Bucharest, Romania.

ABSTRACT
The field of aquatic veterinary medicine is indeed diverse. Veterinarians who have acquired significant expertise and competence in this discipline would need to be recognised. This would ensure that the public has access to advanced veterinary expertise. Traditionally, a specialist must undergo extensive advanced supervised training and produce publications, culminating in the passing of a rigorous set of examinations. Certifying Bodies which set the standards acceptable for specialist registration include the Australian & New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists (ANZCVS), the American Board of Veterinary Specialties (ABVS), the European Board of Veterinary Specialisation (EBVS) and the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS). Apart from the ANZCVS, there is no other program that specifically caters for aquatics.
This presentation will provide an overview on the state of specialisation programs that are available for veterinarians who wish to pursue specialist registration in aquatic animal health and to bring about discussion about whether these satisfy the needs of veterinarians and the clients.

KEY WORDS:
Veterinary Specialisation, Aquatic Animal Health, Australian & New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists.
