  • ACLAM Boards

  • Camp ACLAM

     

    Thursday, June 15: Camp ACLAM

    Camp ACLAM is presented within the Short Course framework to prepare laboratory animal veterinarians who are eligible for ACLAM boards based on experience. This is a unique opportunity to explore study techniques, attend a networking and mentoring session with ACLAM diplomates and participate in a mock ACLAM exam. Camp ACLAM is designed to enhance one's readiness for the boards; however, we do not recommend taking the test in the same year. Camp ACLAM is offered to Short Course participants at no extra cost; however, attendees must register to ensure that sufficient testing materials are available.
