Specializing in Canine and Feline Neurology and Neurosurgery    
4202 E Raymond Street, Phoenix, Arizona 85040   602-437-1488



The neurologists at the Veterinary Neurological Center are board-certified by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM).  In order to obtain the title of specialist and receive board certification, individuals must first receive an undergraduate degree, complete four years of veterinary school, typically followed by advanced training during a one-year internship program. Then they participate in a three-year residency program (such as the VNC’s neurology residency training program) completing specific training and caseload requirements under the supervision of board-certified specialists, as well as conducting research and publishing in scientific journals. Following this training, candidates must submit a credentials' application and then pass a rigorous examination evaluating competence in the specific area of specialization. Once all credentials have been met, and the individual passes the exam, the status of board-certified specialist is granted.
