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 in one of the following ways:

  • If initially certified prior to 2016, reaches the age of sixty-five (65) years.
  • If initially certified prior to 2016, reaches at least sixty (60) years of age and has retired from the active practice of surgery.
  • If initially certified in 2016 or later, reaches at least sixty (60) years of age and has retired from the active practice of surgery.

 

We recognize our 364 distinguished Emeritus Diplomates
