Veterinary Specialty Boards Reading Lists

ACVIM Oncology Reading List

This is only a convenience copy of the ACVIM reading list to help find copies of reading materials in local libraries.  It does not replace the official ACVIM reading list. Candidates are responsible for ensuring they use the latest ACVIM reading list.

The list of suggested reference materials below is meant to guide Candidates in preparing for the Specialty Examination. This list of journals and textbooks is not all-inclusive and does not exclude the possible use of additional sources not specifically listed in this reference guide, such as seminal articles published prior to the date range provided in this document. It represents a body of knowledge that a minimally qualified Board-certified veterinary oncologist is expected to know. While the most up to date publications may not be present on this list, as a best practice residents should have exposure to current literature as an ongoing part of their residency training programs. Specific recommendations for preparation cannot be made beyond the clinical training gained from participation in a residency program.

Note: When more than one edition is available, reference the most current edition, but earlier editions are often current enough with respect to core concepts.

*The following texts provide a detailed knowledge base in oncology.*

"The following texts may have more detail and/or different perspectives on important oncologic topics, or contain specialized information that is not available elsewhere and may be complementary to the texts above"
