Our Diagnostic Imaging residency program is a 39-month American College of Veterinary Radiology (ACVR) accredited residency. The program begins in July and provides training and preparation for the certification examination of the ACVR. It is a non-degree graduate program that leads to an official University of Georgia certificate of residency.

UGA diagnostic imaging boasts the latest in diagnostic imaging technology. The residents’ task is to perform and interpret tests under the direction of ACVR diplomats as part of a weekly rotating schedule. Currently 5 residents are enrolled in the program. Upon completion, residents are eligible to take the ACVR board examination, and when successful, obtain Diplomate certification.
