The AVMA American Board of Veterinary Specialties is seeking comment from the public and the profession regarding the proposed reptile and amphibian practice specialty under the auspices of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners.
The Association of Reptile and Amphibian Veterinarians first petitioned the ABVP in 2006 to begin the process toward recognition. The ABVP submitted a formal petition for recognition of the specialty to the ABVS Committee on the Development of New Specialties in December.
Comments must be received by Nov. 1.
For details, contact Dr. Beth Sabin, AVMA education and research division, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-248-2862 ext. 6675.
