Maintenance of certification deadline reminder

Diplomates certified by ACVS in 2018 must submit their maintenance of certification (MOC) record to ACVS in CERT by November 1, 2023, 11:59 pm (ET).

Diplomates must document a total of 100 activity points. A minimum of 70 activity points must be in the Diplomate’s respective specialty of certification (e.g., small animal surgery or large animal surgery). 2018 Diplomates who do not submit an MOC record by the November 1 deadline or do not satisfy the required number of activity points will lose their certification at the time of certificate expiration. ACVS will notify Diplomates and provide instructions for reinstating their certification.

MOC records for Diplomates certified by ACVS in 2019 or later are not due at this time.
