    What does Limited to the Practice of Surgery mean?

    A veterinarian who has completed residency training, but is not board certified may indicate that his or her practice is “Limited to the Practice of Surgery,” and no connection to the ACVS is implied or intended.

    A “Practice Limited” veterinarian has undergone extensive additional training after veterinary school, consisting of a minimum of a 1-year internship followed by a 3-year residency program. During the residency there are specific training and caseload requirements that must be met and anyone who wishes to pursue board certification after residency must also perform research that is published in a scientific journal.

    Veterinarians who perform surgery under the “Practice Limited” designation may or may not choose to complete the board certification process. Any “Practice Limited” veterinarians employed by MOVES have a demonstrated track record of successful outcomes and the unreserved recommendation of their peers and mentors.
