"Candidates are advised to prepare for the examination by a systematic review of recent textbooks and periodicals. Your mentors can help you select appropriate study material. WE CANNOT DEFINE CONCLUSIVELY THE BODY OF KNOWLEDGE NECESSARY TO PASS THIS EXAMINATION – THE FOLLOWING LIST IS ONLY A GUIDELINE. Please note that although the emphasis of the examination is on recently (within the past 5 years, approximately) published literature, there are not set years that absolutely define which references are used for question preparation:"

"Question material may come from articles published in the official journals of other specialty colleges, which clearly address the diagnosis or management of diseases routinely encountered by small animal internal medicine specialists. Questions covering material published in human literature have been used on this exam. The committee suggests, however, that you limit your review of the human literature to two areas: 1) general concepts in physiology/pathophysiology, and 2) major review articles found in the New England Journal of Medicine. Material unique to human medicine will not be used."
