Become a Diplomate

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. Below is the information and reporting forms required to complete your evaluation once enrolled as a Resident or Alternate Trainee.

For more information regarding becoming a Resident or Alternate Trainee, please read the How to become a specialist document or contact the ECVS office.

ACVS Diplomates can apply to become ECVS Diplomates - read more here.

Once you have successfully completed the training programme you will be considered for the final Board Examination.

Welcome to the new Diplomates 2018.


Residents and Alternate Trainees

Information and reporting forms - please find the most up to date forms below.

Reporting modalities

  • submit one bound (originally signed) hard copy together with a CD with the electronic document (PDF) of each component of the report (CV, case log, prog. summary log etc.). Please do not send scanned PDFs except for diplomas and official papers.
    Please bind your copies in a simple, light-weight and convenient way. Do not put pages in individual pockets and refrain from binding them in a sophisticated way that makes the bundle thicker than absolutely necessary. Please consider that many residents all send their reports to the office around the same time. Anything that keeps these stacks of papers down to a manageable volume is much appreciated!
