MARINA DEL REY, Calif., Nov. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Animal Dermatology Clinic Marina Del Rey announces Dr.

Austin Richman has achieved Diplomate status with the American College of Veterinary Dermatology (ACVD).

Dr. Austin Richman earned his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the University

Prior to accepting a Residency position at Animal Dermatology Clinic in 2015, he completed a rigorous one-year rotating internship at VCA Norwalk/Shoreline Emergency and Specialty Hospitals in Connecticut. Dr. Richman obtained Diplomate status with the American College of Veterinary Dermatology (ACVD) in November 2018.

"I am thrilled to have achieved Diplomate status with the ACVD. It's an amazing feeling to have achieved this goal after years of hard work. Having trained with some of the world's most renowned dermatologists has helped me achieve this goal and equipped me with the very best knowledge to serve my clients and patients. I look forward to contributing to the group and the profession as a diplomate, " says Dr. Austin Richman of Animal Dermatology Clinic Marina Del Rey

Dr. Richman, alongside his Animal Dermatology Clinic resident-mates, Drs.

To become a board-certified veterinary dermatologist, a veterinarian must complete at least 2 years of postgraduate residency training in an institution accredited by the ACVD, publish original research in the field of animal dermatology, demonstrate superior case management, and pass a comprehensive two-day examination.
