The European Board of Veterinary Specialisation (EBVS) is a non-profit organization committed to leading and
promoting veterinary specialist professional training and certification in Europe, aiming to ensure superior animal
and public health and well-being (https://ebvs.eu/).
EBVS National Representatives aim to broadcast the existence and purpose of the EBVS and European Veterinary
Specialisation, within their own countries.
National Representatives should be:
recognized at country level and active in their national specialist association (where applicable),
able to meet with chambers and statutory bodies of their country, so they can act on behalf of EBVS,
good ambassadors for EBVS and the speciality Colleges - they should not be isolated to their own discipline,
but must be willing and able to support all Colleges and
Diplomates of suitable seniority (ideally with a letter of endorsement from their respective College).
National Representatives will be tasked with, among others:
contacting their professional veterinary licensing body (competent authority) to enquire if they are
recognising the EBVS Diplomates, and if not, understanding the issues and working with the support of EBVS to gain
recognition of EBVS and its Colleges,
gathering a database of Veterinary Educational organisations, professional groups and societies within their
geographical area, to whom EBVS should liaise;
encouraging all Veterinary Diplomates in their country to use the EBVS specialist title and the EBVS logo on
their letterhead and promotional materials;
exploring the possibilities to establish a national veterinary specialist organization;
preparing an annual report of activities and
attending any National Representatives’ meeting organized by the EBVS Executive Committee, for which
travel and accommodation expenses will be covered by the EBVS.
