Did you know that as a veterinary technician you have the opportunity to further your education and interest by specializing?

The National Association of Veterinary Technicians (NAVTA) recognizes several specialty academies. Members of this type of academy are credentialed veterinary technicians who have completed additional formal training, education, and testing in their field of interest.

Specialties include Dentistry, Anesthesia, Internal Medicine, Emergency and Critical Care, Behavior, Equine Nursing, Surgery, Clinical Practice and Nutrition, and Zoo Medicine.

There also some professional societies which are made up of veterinary technicians with special interests and who represent a specialty but may not be required to complete formal training or testing.

If you may be interested in pursuing with being a veterinary technician specialist, please visit the NAVTA website for more information.
