Alternate Residency Programme

Criteria to Enroll

The following prerequisites must be met to the satisfaction of the Education Committee before any candidate is eligible to undertake a residency programme. An eligible candidate should:

  • Βe licensed or eligible to be licensed to practise veterinary medicine in a European country unless relieved of this obligation under exceptional circumstances. Applications should be made BEFORE starting a residency programme;
  • have received their veterinary qualification from a European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education (EAEVE)-approved establishment unless relieved of this obligation by the Education Committee. Applications to the Education Committee must be made BEFORE starting a residency programme;
  • have completed a minimum twelve-month rotating internship, which should cover a range of clinical veterinary disciplines, or equivalent approved by the ECVM Education Committee.

Applicants must apply for enrolment in an Alternate Residency Programme as well as for approval of their programme before training begins. Therefore an alternate residency programme can start only after it is ratified by the Education Committee.

The documents must be sent by e-mail both to the Chairperson of the Education Committee and to the Secretary of the College, with respect to the deadlines reported above for Standard Residency Programmes.
