Pathways to the VCI Register of Veterinary Practitioners

A council spokesman said It’s farming editor-in-chief, Catherine Cunnane:

“To be registered in the register of practicing veterinarians, you must hold a diploma in veterinary medicine recognized for the purposes of registration by the Veterinary Council.

“Qualifications in veterinary medicine that are not recognized by the Veterinary Board for registration purposes do not entitle a person to be registered to practice in the state.”

The categories of qualifications below may be automatically recognized by the Veterinary Council for registration purposes:

  1. i) Degrees from Irish universities accredited by the Veterinary Council of Ireland;
  2. ii) Qualifications issued in EU Member States listed in Annex V, point 5.4.2 of Directive 2005/36/EC;

iii) Degrees from universities with full accreditation/accreditation status with the European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education (EAEVE);

  1. iv) Degrees from UK universities accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS);
  2. v) Degrees awarded after September 20e2007 by universities accredited by the American Veterinary Medicine Association (AVMA), where the candidate can provide proof of a passing score on the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLE).
