How do I become an ECVPT diplomat?

In 1997, ECVPT was awarded provisional recognition by the European Board of Veterinary Specialisation. Its interim committee of consisted of nine founding members. Individuals specialized in veterinary pharmacology and toxicology could apply for de facto recognition of their credentials up until 2002. Based on their credentials some applicants were granted de facto recognition and others were given the option of sitting an examination. ECVPT started formal residency training programmes in 2008 and has held examinations annually since 2011. Read more about residency programmes.

What is a Residency programme?

logoA Residency programme is second period (the residency) of at least three (3) years of a postgraduate training programme that has been approved by the ECVPT Education Committee with the applicant spending at least seventy percent (70%) of his/her time (at least twenty four (24) months) under the direct supervision of a Diplomate of the ECVPT. There is a seven (7) year maximum time limit in which candidates must complete their training.

This period is designed to provide the Resident with an in-depth education in the science and state of the art of veterinary pharmacology and toxicology and their supporting disciplines. There shall be additional instruction in the related disciplines of fundamental and comparative pharmacology and toxicology, clinical pharmacology and toxicology, pharmacotherapy and pharmaco- and toxicovigilance, regulatory pharmacology and toxicology and public health (e.g. resistance, certain toxins).

This can take the form of a standard Residency programme (as described above) or it will also be possible to follow an alternate training programme. The length of this programme should be at least similar to the total length of a conventional Residency Programme. If the thirty six (36) month programme is not continuous, it must be arranged in blocks of no less than half a month per block, with a minimum total of four (4) months per year. There is a seven (7) year maximum time limit in which candidates must complete their training.

The alternate training programme should be under the direct supervision and advice of an ECVPT Diplomate. The proposed programme must be approved by the ECVPT Education Committee before training can be started. The applicant will be responsible for setting up an alternate programme. All the requirements for the formal Residency Programme, including publications, presentation log, and activity log, should also be met for an alternative programme. It is stressed that alternative programmes are only approved for an individual and not for an institution.

  • two (2) years working full-time in graduate degree studies at a university; or
  • two (2) years working full-time in an animal health or human pharmaceutical company (e.g. in pharmaceutical R&D, regulatory affairs or pharmacovigilance).
