Emeritus Diplomates

Through long and distinguished service in the practice of veterinary surgery, teaching or research, the Emeritus Diplomates are highly respected for their contributions to veterinary surgery. The ACVS “Emeritus” Diplomate designation is conferred upon Diplomates who have reached 65 years of age or who have reached 60 years of age, have paid dues for 25 consecutive years, and have retired from the active practice of surgery.

We recognize our 331 distinguished Emeritus Diplomates
