Next Examination


10-12 February 2020

The next certifying ECVP examination will be held at:

Het Pand
Ghent University
Onderbergen 1
9000 Ghent


|| Fish as a subsection of Veterinary Pathology is no longer an option. This results from too few candidates taking this subsection.
Fish pathology cases will still be included as appropriate in the Histology and/or Gross sections as this was done in the previous years.

|| The lab animal subsection covers:

  • 40% Non-infectious spontaneous background pathology of laboratory animals
  • 20% Infectious diseases of laboratory animal species
  • 40% Pathology of well-established or well-described animal models of human diseases (transgenic, experimental, infectious…).

Please refer to the page “Considerations and tips” for additional information.

|| Due to a fact that only occasional candidates have chosen toxicological pathology this will be omitted as a part of the veterinary pathology section in the ECVP examination from the examination 2018 onwards, (this part will be taken out). This means that from the examination of 2018, the major part B: “laboratory animals and toxicological pathology” and the minor part f: “toxicological pathology” are no longer valid options and cannot be taken as a part of the veterinary pathology section. It is still possible to choose laboratory animals as a minor part.

Revised application documents will be soon uploaded
