The European College of Veterinary Internal Medicine-Companion Animals recognises Diplomates of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM) for the purposes of training ECVIM-CA Residents. Diplomates of other institutions are not so recognised and therefore must undergo an approved or alternative residency programme.
Holders of the DipACVIM may apply for membership of the ECVIM-CA provided that they fulfil the extra requirements, as laid out in the ECVIM Information Brochure for the specific specialty. The credentials that must be submitted are summarised in the checklists which can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.
Members of the ECVIM-CA who are also Diplomates of the ACVIM are still required to undergo re-evaluation every 5 years.
The fee for evaluation of credentials is 250€. You will be sent a link to pay this fee once your application is received by the Secretariat.
