For veterinarians who wish to apply for recognition as a Diplomate of ECVSMR but do not work in Europe, the following regulation applies:
The EBVS states in its Policies & Procedures: "The College must only certify veterinarians who are licensed to practise or are eligible to be licensed to practise in a European country. Applicants may be relieved of this requirement in exceptional cases." The Board of ECVSMR would therefore like to point out the following:
Subject to approval by the credentials committee, non-Europeans can apply for the initial applicant pathway.
However, the ECVSMR would like to reiterate that obtaining ECVSMR Diplomate status does not automatically lead to the eligibility to work in Europe.
