Veterinary Professionals


Quality training of residents is a core part of the ACVR's mission

American College of Veterinary Radiology (ACVR) Radiology or Radiation Oncology Residency Programs are training programs allowing a graduate veterinarian (Resident) to acquire in-depth knowledge of (1) veterinary radiology or (2) veterinary radiation oncology and their supporting disciplines under the supervision and guidance of ACVR board-certified radiologists or radiation oncologists (Diplomates).

Residency Training Programs are available at universities or in private practice and are intended to lead to board certification by the ACVR in general Diagnostic Imaging, Equine Diagnostic Imaging, or Radiation Oncology. Trainees must have a DVM, or equivalent degree. A one-year rotating internship or equivalent practice experience is generally required.

Search for available radiology residency positions under ‘Residency – Diagnostic Imaging and Radiology’ or radiation oncology residency positions under ‘Residency – Radiation Oncology/Therapy’ at the Veterinary Internship and Residency Matching Program (VIRMP). Applications may be submitted starting in mid-October with a submission deadline of early December of each year. Some institutions do not use the VIRMP, so contact the individual institution for their application requirements.
