Start your residency
What is a Residency Programme?
A European College of Veterinary Dermatology (ECVD) - approved Residency Programme is designed to provide in-depth training in veterinary dermatology, combining related basic and applied sciences and clinical dermatology.This will allow a qualified veterinarian (the Resident) to develop a comprehensive knowledge of the dermatological conditions of domestic animals, enabling them to meet the training requirements of the ECVD Credentials Committee. Once the requirements have been fulfilled, the resident will be able to sit the ECVD Diploma Examination and by passing this examination become a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Dermatology.
How to become an ECVD Resident
Any veterinarian wishing to undertake a residency training programme must:
- Have completed a minimum 1 year, recognized internship of flexible rotating clinical training in veterinary medicine beyond the professional degree or as an equivalent to a rotating internship, clinical experience of at least two years in general practice will be accepted

All residency programmes must be approved by the ECVD Education Committee and are subject to current College guidelines.
Available candidates are recognized as potential applicants for open residency positions. Verification of required preconditions to become an ECVD resident is obliged to each mentor´s responsibility.
Two types of Residency are available: Standard (formalised) residencies, which are usually associated with an academic institution or ECVD Diplomate in practice, and alternate route residencies, wherein the resident arranges his training within specified guidelines.
