Candidate Mentoring List
Share |
The following is a list of ACT Diplomates who are willing to assist candidates planning to sit the ACT Certifying Examination. These individuals are willing to work as mentors or in an advisory capacity in the candidate's study program. Some Diplomates are also willing to host the candidate who needs to gain exposure to cases or species to which they have little or no access. Candidates who already have a mentor or who are enrolled in residency programs may want to consider consulting with other Diplomates to get varied points of view on areas of study, resources available and weaknesses in their knowledge base. This list in no way constitutes a recommendation for any particular Diplomate to be a mentor. It is meant only to provide the candidates with a list of Diplomates who are willing and able to facilitate their study program.

Mission Statement

The mission of the ACT is to promote animal well-being, reproductive health, responsible breeding and genetic practices, and efficient management of breeding-age animals in agriculture, veterinary practice, zoos, preserves, and ecosystems. In particular, the ACT envisions development of focus areas in theriogenology to incorporate the following in theriogenology/reproductive medicine:

1. Population control for domestic and non-domestic animals including feral animals, free-ranging and captive wildlife.

2. Genomics in livestock and companion animal practice.
