What is a Veterinary Specialist?

Veterinary specialists are veterinarians who have advanced training in various veterinary medical and surgical disciplines and are Board-certified. To become Board-certified, a veterinarian must have completed, at a minimum, four years of veterinary college, a one year internship or equivalent, and two to three years in a residency program that meets the standards of a recognized specialty college or board. There are additional training and caseload requirements that must be met during the residency and finally, to become an ACVIM Diplomate the veterinarian must pass a series of rigorous examinations.

For more info, please contact Dr. Bragdon.

Dr. Bragdon is co-founder of the Independent Veterinary Practitioners Association and currently serves as the President. Her primary goal in her work on behalf of IVPA members is to use her expertise gained working for large veterinary pharmaceutical and device companies to promote the unique value independent practices deliver to their clients, their patients, and their communities.

Dr. Bragdon joined PS Broker to educate veterinary students and veterinarians about the benefits of practice ownership. The combination of PS Broker’s expertise in evaluating and selling veterinary practices and Dr. Bragdon’s expertise in running a hospital as a clinician will support veterinarians as they explore ownership opportunities.
