Academic Success – Dr Michael Chambers

Few of us have so ably demonstrated their commitment to learning and growing as Michael Chambers. He continually pushes his academic boundaries by sitting Membership exams with the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists. Membership requires a combination of superior practical and theoretical knowledge, passing two written exams, an oral exam, and sometimes a practical exam. 

Michael has just completed his fourth membership with ANZCVS – a very impressive achievement, and is now a member of ANZCVS in:

  • Veterinary Parasitology and Parasitic Disease 
  • Animal Nutrition (Ruminant) 
  • Veterinary Epidemiology 
  • Veterinary Pharmacology 

A spokesperson for the ANZCVS commented:  “it is not unusual for a member to hold three membership qualifications, but only a few members hold four membership qualifications.”

Michael attained his latest membership qualification this year, even though he has been extremely busy leading the Invetus merger activities at Armidale, in addition to his regular workload.

 About membership of ANZCVS:

The Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists (ANZCVS) seeks to serve the veterinary profession and reward excellence.

The award of Membership of the College is conferred upon a veterinarian who is eligible to sit and successfully passes an examination in a given Membership subject.

College Membership signifies that a veterinarian has expertise and competence in a nominated subject area. To become a member of the College a candidate must have at least four years’ post-graduate experience as a veterinarian and have successfully completed both written and oral/practical examinations in one of the diverse range of subjects on offer.
