    This course is encouraged for candidates for the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP) as well as anyone interested in a hardcore review of general medicine. You do not have to be a potential ABVP candidate to participate. However, the course should provide in-depth coverage of topics participants need to know to help prepare for the ABVP Certification Examination. This course also includes one practice examination simulating the real ABVP practical test. Your course instructors will immediately review your practicals to enhance your learning experience. This truly is the industry’s best value for an ABVP prep course when you consider all that is included in your trip (lodging, meals, course materials, etc.). Take your canine/feline skills to the max in preparation for the ABVP exam or just because you want to be the best you can be.

    “I emphatically recommend this course to anyone that wants to improve their internal medicine game as well as prepare for the ABVP certification or recertification examinations or even start the process of ABVP certification to ensure it will be what they expect.”

    – Eric Lindquist, DMV, DABVP, Cert. IVUSS




    After completing this program, you will have acquired the rigorous medical knowledge needed for the canine/feline ABVP exam in the following areas:

    “Being a veteran of the ABVP process (double ABVP Diplomate and two recertifications) I can tell you that this course is a great comprehensive review of current canine/feline practice.  The course is organized to follow the “road map” of subjects covered on the ABVP exam and the practice practical exams are not only challenging but didactic as well.  Whether you are planning on sitting for the ABVP Canine/Feline Boards, or just want a thorough review of your canine/feline medicine, this course is for you.”

    – Douglas Mader, MS, DVM

    Dr. Little serves on the board of the American Association of Feline Practitioners and the National Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners. She is also the editor/ author of two feline medicine textbooks – The Cat: Clinical Medicine and Management and August’s Consultations in Feline Internal Medicine Volume 7. Her two feline-only hospitals are in Ottawa, Ontario.

    “As a first time candidate for ABVP certification, I found the NAVC Institute course to be very helpful in helping me to organize my study focus. This course helped point out my weak spots that needed more concentration and provided a good review of subjects that I felt more comfortable with. The practice tests were very accurate in showing the format of the questions on the exam and made the entire test taking process much less intimidating.”
