In response to widespread recognition for the need to support and enhance intern and resident wellbeing, the AAVMC released guidelines for programs in October 2022.

The ACVIM Board of Regents has also acknowledged the importance resident wellbeing plays in the recruitment, retention, and successful certification of specialists. To further contribute to this profession-wide dialogue, the ACVIM is facilitating discussions with residency training program directors to explore ways that the ACVIM can best support the implementation of these guidelines in both academic and private practice settings.
