The primary objective of this surgical residency program is to prepare the resident for certification by the ACVS. 7.2 In order to qualify for examination the resident should refer to the published requirements of the college and commit themselves to an organizational scheme and preparation schedule early in the first year of the program. The ACVS Certification Examination consists of 2 parts: Phase 1 Surgical Knowledge and Phase 2 Surgical Competency It is highly recommended that the Phase 1 examination be taken during year 2 of the residency. If the resident intends to sit Phase 1 of the exam during the spring of their second year as recommended, they must submit all components of their training for review including 2 satisfactory semi-annual reviews, a minimum of 52 weeks completed and approved by the ACVS Resident Credentialing Committee (RCC), and 2 seminars approved by the RCC. Dates and location of the examination will be published in the fall of the year preceding the exam Phase 2 of the examination will be offered in the first 3 months of the year following completion of the residency. The format of
7 the examination is currently under development. For a resident to be eligible to sit for Phase 2 of the examination: Phase 1 of the examination must be successfully passed All residency requirements must be completed and approved by the RCC A completed credentials application must be approved by the ACVS Acceptance of a first author manuscript by a publication of the approved journal list One first-author publication resulting from prospective/retrospective studies or original research must be competed and fully accepted to a journal from the Approved Journals List in the ACVS handbook by August 1 st of the final year of the residency program. A manuscript is considered fully accepted when the author receives a letter of acceptance from the editor and further review by a reviewer is not required Publication must reflect original work or a previously unpublished case series 7.3 It is solely the responsibility of the resident to submit any material and fees required by the college for registration for board examinations. 7.4 The resident is responsible for maintaining a web based Residency training log which is to include the following : Surgical case log Residency activity log Resident presentation log Documentation of training in equine internal medicine, anesthesiology, radiology and pathology 7.5 The Resident Training Log is the web-based residency documentation and evaluation program. The Program Director (PD), Resident Advisor (RA), resident and ACVS have responsibilities for documentation and verification of satisfactory training for each resident. It is a requirement that each participant in a residency program review the Resident Training Requirements (pp of the Residency Training Standards and Requirements) to understand the log requirements.
8 7.6 The resident is responsible for entering cases, activity weeks, seminars, specialty rotations, and supervisors in the online logs. The RA will verify and approve log items and complete a semi-annual performance review online. The PD will verify the review in line prior to August 1 of each year of the program. 7.7 The resident will provide a current curriculum vitae to the RA and PD on an annual basis. 8.0 Clinical Program The major responsibility of the surgical resident, under the direct supervision of faculty, is to receive, diagnose, operate upon and/or otherwise provide surgical and medical management of patients admitted to the VTH&C. The residents responsibility for patient care and teaching will increase as training progresses, dependent upon his/hers demonstrated level of proficiency. 8.1 Direct surgical supervision by an ACVS diplomat and consultation on patient management will continue throughout the program. 8.2 The residency program rotation will follow the Phase II professional teaching schedule which is composed of 12 blocks of 4 to 6 weeks each. 8.3 Emergency duty: The VTH&C provides both daytime and after hours emergency services to all large animal species throughout the year. The resident will share with other house officers and faculty in primary and backup emergency duty for equine and farm animal species. Emergency duty commits the resident to evening, weekend, and holiday duty on a rotating basis While such activities will be closely supervised early in the program, the resident is expected to develop appropriate skills in emergency patient care which will require less supervision as the program progresses. 8.4 Clinical Rounds: The resident will participate in the Phase II clinical rounds program of the service to which he/she is currently assigned House Officer Rounds: The resident will participate in weekly equine house officer rounds either as the presenter or in attendance (Wednesday 8:15 9:00 am) and other scheduled conferences of the Equine Section. The resident will be responsible for presenting rounds every 4 to 6 weeks with the following format options:
9 Research Rounds: Recommended format for at least 1 presentation during the year Complicated cases: Must include a thorough review of the literature Morbidity/Mortality case presentation: Presentation of a complicated case that did not have a positive outcome; discuss alternative treatment options that may have had better results; must include pertinent review of the literature Journal Club: A review of 2 to 3 articles from recent (within the past 5 years) refereed journals in veterinary surgery, medicine, or other pertinent disciplines House officer presentations will be evaluated by meeting attendees. House officers may exchange time slots with other house officers (please notify Dr. McConnico of the change by Friday before the presentation). House Officer Rounds can only be cancelled by equine senior faculty members Other seminars in the SVM will be attended ad scheduling permits. Attendance at rounds and seminars at a local medical facility could be arranged. 8.5 Annual Rotation Schedule (12 blocks/year, 4 6 weeks /block) Rotations Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Surgery block 8 8 or 9 8 Research block 21/2 21/2 21/2 Medicine block 1 Radiology block 1/2 Pathology block 1/2 Anesthesia block 1/2 Food Animal Surgery (optional) The above schedule satisfies the ACVS surgery resident program requirements: One hundred and ten weeks of clinical surgery under the direct supervision of an ACVS diplomat; 80 continuous hours of equine internal medicine; 80 hours of radiology; 40 hours of pathology (clinical pathology); and 80continuous hours of anesthesiology.
