ADG currently hosts the largest residency program of the American College of Veterinary Dermatology.

Each July, a new group of veterinarians embark on the rigorous process of becoming board certified veterinary dermatologists. After completing a one-year clinical internship, these residents begin a 3-year program of supervised educational training in the discipline of dermatology. The program also requires residents to publish original research in veterinary dermatology and pass the ACVD certifying examination at the conclusion of their residency.

ADG's 2022 residency class includes Dr. AnnMarie Bloomer (graduate of the Texas A&M School of Veterinary Medicine) at Animal Dermatology Clinic – Marietta, GA; Dr. Tori Cleaver (St. George's University School of Veterinary Medicine) at Animal Dermatology Clinic – Tustin, CA; Dr. Tricia Daniels (Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine) at Animal Dermatology Clinic – Pasadena, CA; and Dr. Jyothi Surendran (College of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Kerala, India, ECFVG Training, Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine) at Animal Dermatology Clinic – Wayne, NJ. In addition, ADG has partnered with the University of Minnesota to sponsor Dr. Helena Montin (UMNCVM graduate) to undertake her dermatology residency with the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine.

"It's always an exciting time for us when we welcome new residents," stated Dr. Rusty Muse, DACVD, ADG's Medical Affairs Director. "One of the most rewarding aspects for our medical team is the opportunity to pass along the knowledge and insights we've gathered over the years of clinical practice to future dermatologists. The collaborative learning experience we foster is enriching for both the student and mentor."

ADG has the distinction of being the first private organization approved to offer a residency program by the ACVD and host the largest residency program preparing future veterinary dermatologists.
