Due to the lack of specialists in Norway, AniCura Norway has initiated a program to considerably increase the number of small-animal specialists.
In Norway, AniCura has developed a program for those veterinarians, who want to become small-animal specialists. The first program was launched in the spring and six candidates have started the three-year long program.
In order to become a specialist in Norway, the individual is responsible for managing and fulfilling the obligations specified by the Norwegian Veterinary Association. In this AniCura program, the participants have an advisor and follow a structured process with knowledge-sharing, case-presentations, and meetings. Furthermore, the program participants work together on writing a scientific paper that must be published in a peer-reviewed journal, a requirement to become a Norwegian specialist.
