The American College of Zoological Medicine’s Education Committee in conjunction with the North Carolina State University Office of Continuing Education is proud to offer the second virtual ACZM Exam Preparation and Study Course. Sign in from the comfort of your own home or office on Sunday, June 13th, 2021, 9:00am - 6:15pm EST.  

Who Should Take this Course?

Any veterinarian interested in learning more about the American College of Zoological Medicine, those that are interested in seeking Diplomate status, are in the process of preparing for examination, or any individual who is interested in and can benefit from in-depth, up-to-date, literature-based review lectures in zoological medicine.  The exam preparation and study course is administered and instructed by ACZM Diplomates

What Does the Course Include?

The course, delivered via Zoom, reviews the outline of the ACZM examination including structure, grading, and study strategies. In depth topic reviews are presented by ACZM Diplomates, many of which currently serve on the Exam Committee and have recently passed the ACZM Examination themselves.  Mock examinations will be held at the end of the day to provide the attendees an example of what to expect on the board examinations.  And back by popular demand, we will have a special Q & A lunch session with the chairs of the Exam and Credentialing committees to answer any additional questions!  With the cost of registration, Zoom links to the course (software is free), complete lecture notes, and recordings of the lectures will be provided to the attendees, in case you cannot attend live. 

How Do I Register?

The cost of this course is $125/person, open to veterinarians and registration is open through June 12.
