North American Academy of Veterinary Orthopedic Surgery
Welcome to the website of the North American Academy of Veterinary Orthopedic Surgery (NAAVOS).
We have developed a program of credentialing that offers practicing veterinarians an opportunity to become credentialled in the area of veterinary orthopedic surgery. The NAAVOS is the first professional veterinary organization in the United States to offer experienced based credentialing in a specific veterinary discipline.
There are 2 levels of credentialing available, Membership and Fellowship. Applicants can choose to pursue credentialing in either one or both at their own pace without leaving practice.
Credentialing by the NAAVOS is not equivalent to Board Certification by a Veterinary Specialty College, but it does provide a goal for those veterinarians with a passion for orthopedic surgery and a desire to have their skills and acomplishments recognized.
Please take a look at our website and our organization. We would be more than happy to answer any questions and provide guidance to help you accomplish the credentialing process.
NAAVOS HAS BEEN GRANTED 501 (c) 6 NON-PROFIT STATUS BY THE IRS.
Our website is still under construction. Come back often for updates and changes.
