Residency: The ASG surgery residency is an in-depth, intensive 3-year program designed to train the resident to become a fully competent small animal surgeon and meet the requirements of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons for board certification.
Surgery residents rotate through the clinical services of 4 board-certified surgeons, developing clinical skills, knowledge, and state-of-the-art surgical proficiency in soft tissue surgery, orthopedics (including joint replacement surgeries), neurosurgery, and oncologic surgery.
Residents develop and implement a research project, present the results at a national meeting, and complete a manuscript for publication in a referred journal.
