ECAWBM BM – Resident’s Study day
Each year a Resident’s Study Day is organised aiming to help residents to improve their knowledge in the field of Behavioural Medicine and to discuss specific topics with other residents and Diplomates.
Residents will be informed by email about the event.
The goal of the examination is to assess the knowledge and clinical skills of candidates applying for the veterinary board certification in small animal behaviour by the ECAWBM-BM; therefore, the exam is based on the learning outcomes of the ECAWBM-BM residency programmes.
To be eligible to sit the examination, candidates must have had their credentials approved by the Credentials committee.
Veterinarians internationally recognised in the field of Behavioural Medicine, can apply to sit the ECAWBM examination without prior completion of a Residency programme.
A candidate who fails the theoretical or practical parts of the examination must re-apply, if he/she wishes to re-sit this part of the examination in a subsequent year. The candidate is advised to discuss this decision with their supervisor prior to making an application to re-sit an examination.
Application Deadlines for Re-Examination
The appropriate application form (BM Examination resit form) must be submitted to the BM Examination Sub Committee (deadline to be defined)
Please note: there is a 25% reduction for candidates who have to apply for parts of the examination as resits.
