The General Information Guide (GIG) and Certification Manual (CM) contain procedures and guidelines for individuals interested in certification by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM) specialties of Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Neurology, and Oncology. Each candidate must fulfill the requirements outlined in the GIG or CM edition in effect at the time he/she registered with the ACVIM office at the beginning of his/her training program.
Beginning July 1, 2018, the CM will replace the GIG as the governing document for Certification procedures and guidelines.
