What is a Veterinary Dermatologist?

The American College of Veterinary Dermatology (ACVD) is an organization of veterinarians certified in Veterinary Dermatology. To be certified as a Veterinary Dermatologist, a veterinarian must complete at least 2 years of postgraduate residency training, publish original research in scientific journals, and demonstrate superior case management through submission of case reports. The final step in certification is a comprehensive two day examination administered by the American College of Veterinary Dermatology. Dermatologists must receive continuing education on a regular basis to maintain their certification status.
