COMPLETE LIST OF BOARDED DIPLOMATES
(Up to date as of February, 2019)
Below you will find a comprehensive list of living ACVO Boarded Diplomates. Some of these Diplomates may choose not to be members of ACVO, if this is the case that person's name will not show up in the online referral database searches on the ACVO.org website. Search for an ACVO Member.
Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Participation
Maintenance of Certification (MOC) establishes high standards for patient care in veterinary ophthalmology, equips diplomates with tools for lifelong learning and continuous practice improvement, and provides patients with a credible indicator of specialist quality. The ABVO encourages all diplomates to participate in MOC; however, this program is required only for diplomates certified on or after 2015. On this page each Diplomate is noted as either ‘Mandatory’, ‘Voluntary’, or ‘through XYZyear’. The latter means their certification is renewed through this year. If a diplomate is required to participate in MOC and has failed the requirement, their name will be removed from the boarded diplomate list and they are not allowed to call themselves an ophthalmologist or specialist in practice.
