ACVS Fellowship in Joint Replacement Surgery
A founding fellow in Joint Replacement Surgery (JRS) is an ACVS Diplomate who has obtained additional training and experience beyond surgery residency training, demonstrates expertise in JRS, and devotes a major portion of their professional effort to research and to the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of JRS patients.
ACVS Fellowship Training Centers
ACVS-approved fellowship training centers provide specialized training in joint replacement surgery. The training program is designed for ACVS Diplomates and veterinarians who have completed a residency at an ACVS Registered Residency Training Program. Both the fellow candidate and the training institution must comply with the Minimum Standards for ACVS Fellowship Training in Joint Replacement Surgery. Fellow candidates must submit the training registration form and registration fee to the American College of Veterinary Surgeons (ACVS) office within 30 days of starting the fellowship training program. Contact the program representative for information about the fellowship training centers.
