To qualify to sit for the extensive, two-day examination, a veterinarian must complete either a residency program or six years of clinical veterinary practice. In addition, two case reports, references, descriptions of practice procedures, and professional education records must be submitted and pass review. This year’s examination was given on Nov. 5-7, 2010 in Chicago, IL.
Dr. Rolfe is a 1991 graduate of VA-MD Regional College of Veterinary Medicine and has a special interest in preventative and holistic medicine, as well as the care of reptiles and exotic mammals. She is a member of AAV, AVMA, ARAV, and AEMV.
