Please propose colleagues meeting the criteria!

The EBVS Specialisation Award allows the EBVS to acknowledge contributions made by an individual or organisation to the progress and recognition of Veterinary Specialisation in Europe. This might include work on behalf of a College to gain it broad recognition across different European countries, or work in an individual country, across multiple disciplines in a single country or region to help gain recognition for EBVS specialists more generally.

In 2013, the ECPHM Board has unanimously decided that the 3rd year residents have to prepare a clinical case to be published in the EAPHM website. This "exercise" for our residents is compulsory. It is expected that from the 1st of January 2014 onward every month one clinical case will be published.

It is my perception that the ECPHM is more alive than ever! And certainly, there are many issues that come to my mind when I am saying this:

  • We got the full recognition as a College by the EBVS (April this year), and this is only possible if all areas of our organization are functioning well
  • The existing standard and alternative residencies includes nowadays 42 enthusiastic ECPHM residents all over Europe; these young professionals represent the future of the College and our profession, not only in Europe but also worldwide
  • Organization of resident workshops is in the process of consolidation (we organized in 2013 the second one) and the first summer school of the College took place just few months ago; I must remind that continuous education is one of the most important task of the College
  • Last October we organized the 6th exam of the ECPHM, with 13 candidates, more than ever! Certainly it was a big challenge for the Exam Committee and a great organizational success
  • The last ESPHM held in Edinburgh was, again, a tremendously successful event, with more than 1000 participants, and a good sign of consolidation of the Symposium in the international scenario 

And the list would probably last for much longer, since there are many people “behind the scenes” to ensure that all these tasks are properly done.

Credentials Committee
Posted by Cinta Prieto

During the last AGM that was held in Edinburgh last May the composition of the Credentials Com- mittee varied slightly. By constitution the President and Vice-president of the College are members of this committee and, accordingly, Joaquim Segalés, who was selected President of the ECPHM at the AGM replaced Dominik Maes in the Credentials Committee and Paolo Martelli who is the current Vice-president became a member of the Credentials Committee replacing Joaquim Segalés, who was already a member of the Committee as former Vice-president.
