                Welcome to AVTCP!

The Academy of Veterinary Technicians in Clinical Practice advances the profession of veterinary technology through recognition and support of veterinary technicians and veterinary nurses who demonstrate the highest standards of practice in clinical healthcare.

AVTCP is the ninth officially recognized veterinary technician specialty (VTS) and is modeled after the American Veterinary Medical Association accredited veterinary college, the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP). Following the ABVP model, AVTCP has developed three initial species-specific categories, Canine/Feline, Exotic Companion Animal, and Production Medicine.

The credentialed veterinary technicians of the AVTCP are dedicated to providing superior, comprehensive, multi-disciplinary care to clients and patients. Candidates are expected to be knowledgeable and demonstrate expertise in a broad range of clinical disciplines within their species specialty.
