Diplomate Training

An American College of Veterinary Radiology (ACVR) Diplomate is a veterinarian who has undergone advanced training in a Radiology or Radiation Oncology Residency Program and has passed the ACVR Board Certification Examination in one or both specialties.

The ACVR Board Certification Examination is a separate examination for each specialty. Some ACVR Diplomates are dual boarded in both Radiology and Radiation Oncology. An ACVR Diplomate is usually referred to as simply a Board Certified Veterinary Radiologist or Board Certified Veterinary Radiation Oncologist.

The ACVR Diplomate has earned the right to be called a Recognized Specialist in Diagnostic Imaging or Recognized Specialist in Radiation Oncology by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).
