RCVS Veterinary Specialist

This month the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) council approved Hannah’s application for specialist status, making her an RCVS Specialist in Veterinary Cardiology, in addition to her European Specialist status.
The RCVS says the following about specialist status:
‘RCVS Recognised Specialist status is not easily achieved. To be included on the List of Recognised Specialists, and individual must have achieved a postgraduate qualification at least at Diploma level, and must additionally satisfy the RCVS that they make an active contribution to their speciality, have national and international acclaim and publish widely in their field.
A Recognised Specialist must also be available for referral by other veterinary surgeons.’
