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.

Don't see your specialty? Let us know and we'll add it! 

We update boards based on the list of residents in their final year. If your board hasn't been updated and you need to begin studying, please contact us and we will prioritize that specialty.

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