Advancement through excellence

The European College of Veterinary Surgeons (ECVS) is recognised throughout the veterinary profession for its progressive leadership, innovative programmes in continuing education and for the high standard of professional excellence of its members, the Diplomates.

In order to become a Diplomate, veterinary surgeons, known as Residents, must undergo a rigorous training programme in either Large or Small animal surgery, supervised by recognised veterinary specialists e.g. other Diplomates or Professors of Surgery at a number of Universities. More >
