About the Reading Lists

These pages compile the recommended reading lists for the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Recognized Specialty Veterinary Organizations (RSVOs) examinations. We hope you will find this information useful as you prepare for boards!

Many thanks to the Veterinary Information Resource Committee of the Veterinary Medical Library Section (Medical Library Association) for compiling the reading lists and creating templates for veterinary libraries to use.
