RTP Relocation Requests
On occasion, an ACVIM candidate either wishes or needs to leave their current RTP and is then required to complete their training requirements in a new program. Although residency relocations are not encouraged, the ACVIM recognizes that, at times, it is necessary and will support those relocation requests through a predefined process. For more information or to initiate an RTP relocation request, please contact the ACVIM staff at Certification@ACVIM.org.
Candidates are also encouraged to contact their specialty ombudsperson in situations of relocation. Contact information for each specialty can be found below. The purpose of the Ombudsperson is to ensure that all residents feel that the path to certification is clear and that they have someone available to answer any questions that may arise.
