First things to consider

ECVPT is the European College of Veterinary Pharmacology and Toxicology.

Potential Residents must be qualified to practice veterinary medicine in Europe, ideally from an EAEVE-approved institution, or to present evidence of veterinary education and training which in the judgement of the Council is an equivalent qualification. Diplomates of the College play an important role in the training of Residents. Prospective Residents are advised to contact an ECVPT Diplomate for guidance.

Residency Programmes and Courses

Residency programmes are typically tailored to the professional needs and interests of Residents. A more detailed description of Residency programmes can be found in our Residency training procedures.

Courses and workshops will be advertised on our Meetings & Events page.

Diplomates of EBVS-recognized colleges have to submit their credentials every 5-years to their College for re-evaluation and re-certification of their Diplomate status. The information required for re-evaluation is standardised and included on a form that has been approved by EBVS. The form can be downloaded here: re-certification documentThe information required covers the portfolio of Diplomate activities in those past 5 years.The re-evaluation is usually conducted by a committee chaired by the ECVPT Credentials committee chair.

The 2022 deadline for submission of the re-certification document is February 15th 2022. Documents should be submitted to Prof Dr. McKellar via email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
