Hello all! Still a year out from clinical rotations, but like many of the other posters on here I am already considering my options post-graduation and (again like many of you) I have a couple of specialties that I’m interested in, zoo/exotics/wildlife and diagnostic imaging. My question, which I couldn’t find an answer to on searching the forum, is in reference to the possibility of ultimately pursuing diagnostic imaging as a specialty. Generally speaking, do DI residents and ACVR diplomates do any/much work within the ZEW realm or is that generally left to the experts/residents/diplomates of those specialties and professional organizations? Is there any potential for a pathway from DI to zoo med similar to with clin path? Conversely, would the better pairing of these interests be to pursue something like a zoo med residency and the ACZM pathway and try to carve out a DI interest within that field myself?
