See the 'Help' link in the MOC System for detailed information on the use and requirements.

A. You must configure your Directory Options in your account to do so. See Diplomate Directory Options.

Q. Why can't I find a member in the Directories?
A. The ACVR has two Directories. The private Members Directory available only to ACVR members and the public Directory of Diplomates available to anyone.

The private Members Directory defaults to find members in any country. However, if you can't find someone in the private Members Directory, they may have configured their Directory options in their account not to apppear. Contact the Webmaster using the Email Contact Form for more information.

The public Directory of Diplomates defaults to find Diplomates in the United States. To locate Diplomates in ANY country, choose 'Select' at the very top of the Country popup menu. If you still can't find a Diplomate in the Directory of Diplomates, they may have configured their Directory options in their account not to appear. Appearance is voluntary and currently only 44% of Diplomates have elected to appear. If you are a Diplomate and would like to appear, see Diplomate Directory Options.

Q. What is the Locum feature in the Members Directory? - Diplomates can indicate in their profile whether they are willing to do locums and specify the terms of employment (dates available, etc).
