Veterinary Specialty Boards Reading Lists, Washington State University

Compiled reading lists designed to assist veterinary residents with preparation for the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Recognized Specialty Veterinary Organizations (RSVOs) examinations.

ACVIM Cardiology Reading List

Listed books represent current resources that may cover similar content and thus may be redundant to each other. The candidate should be familiar with the relevant concepts covered in these books. Not all books in each subject area are necessary to adequately cover all concepts as outlined in the document formally known as the GIG... In addition, this list is not meant to exclude other resources that adequately address concepts as outlined in the GIG.
Note: When more than one edition is available then the most current edition is listed but earlier editions are often current enough with respect to core concepts.

"Partial reference list."

This is only a convenience copy of the ACVIM reading list to help find copies of reading materials in local libraries.  It does not replace the official ACVIM reading list. Candidates are responsible for ensuring they use the latest ACVIM reading list.

Veterinary cardiac literature from 2015 - September 1st, 2019 should receive the most attention. In addition, some relevant veterinary studies published in the human literature may be cited. Veterinary cardiac literature older than 2015 may also be referenced if more current publications have not addressed the topic."
