What is a Veterinary Specialist?
How are they different from a family veterinarian?
In addition to completing undergraduate training and four years of veterinary school. the Southeast Veterinary Oncology and Medicine Specialists are similar to their human medical counterparts in that they have completed internship and residency training in their specialized field (an additional three-to-five years of training).
In addition to this extensive training, a board-certified veterinary specialist must pass multiple rigorous examinations to achieve Board Certification from their respective colleges. Specialists bring a greater understanding in the area of internal medicine, cardiology, oncology or neurology. and have a greater knowledge of the unusual, the uncommon and rare medical conditions in both dogs and cats.
