Residency in Aquatic Animal Medicine

A veterinary residency is highly specialized training for DVMs that follows an internship or equivalent private practice experience. The Aquatic Animal Medicine Residency at the University of Florida is a three year training program accredited by the American College of Zoological Medicine (ACZM).

This program includes advanced training in aquatic animal medicine with emphasis in:

  • diagnosis and treatment of diseases of aquatic animals
  • clinical proficiency in preventive medicine programs
  • preparation for the ACZM board certification examination with specialization in aquatic animal medicine

Our highly competitive residency program is currently able to accommodate only one resident per three year cycle and the next anticipated opening will be in 2014. The applications are handled through the Veterinary Internship and Residency Matching Program (VIRMP).
