The ECVPT Education and Residency Committee has started a series of seminars especially for the education and training of our Residents. Although initially set-up for ECVPT Residents we do welcome all interested in the topics to these seminars and please feel free to circulate the topics, dates, times and link to the meeting with interested parties.

After a first very successful seminar on ecotoxicity the series continues with a session on mycotoxins. Later this year seminars are scheduled that cover cardio-renal pharmacology (November 24th at 5pm CET) and Parasitology (December, final date to be announced).


The International Veterinary Simulation in Teaching advisory board and the local organizing committee invite you to attend InVeST2020 held at St. George’s University, located in Grenada, West Indies from May 1 – May 3, 2020.

The theme this year is “Taking technology and educational simulation into the next decennium” With our theme, we aim to explore a range of questions:

  • How can we implement technology into veterinary education for the benefit of our students?
  • How to design and use meaningful low fidelity models in different educational settings?
  • How can we best implement high fidelity models in veterinary medicine?
  • What are the main challenges facing veterinary educational simulation for the 21stCentury?
  • What are the needs of students, and how can we meet them?
  • What more should we all be doing to enhance learning experiences?

The event will bring together scholars, educators, students and business leaders to share research and novel ideas involving simulation in veterinary medicine to advance training future generations of veterinarian.

The conference will feature distinguished keynote speakers, short presentations, workshops, poster presentations, and opportunities for networking and establishing future collaborations.

Social activities are also planned to allow attendees the opportunity to explore and enjoy the many natural treasures on the beautiful island of Grenada.

Regulation 2019/6 of the European Union, published in January 2019 and coming into effect in January 2022, marks the most relevant change in the landscape of the registration and commercialisation of veterinary medicinal products for a long time. For those developing new VMPs, the Annex II of this regulation will provide highly important details on the requirements for different VMPs: pharmaceuticals, immunological and non-immmunological biologicals, specialities and a variety of novel therapies. After EMA/CVMP providing their proposal to the European commission, member states have been providing their input and an updated draft version is expected soon. This conference targets to provide a platform for discussion and possibly one of the rare public international opportunities to discuss “Expectations of the Annex 2 proposal of Regulation 2019/6” of the different stakeholders with speakers from the European Medicine Agency, national competent authorities, industry and other experts.
