European master of small animal veterinary medicine

2 year(s)

Objectives

The European School for Advanced Veterinary Studies (ESAVS) has realised the need for a broader training that would allow veterinary graduates in practice to study over a number of years and acquire a recognized university postgraduate degree.

Therefore, the ESAVS formalised in 2008 a long-term association with the University of Luxembourg and its Faculty of Science, Technology and Communication. This cooperation has enabled the establishment of a degree, the European Master of Small Animal Veterinary Medicine (EMSAVM),

The EMSAVM is a University Degree which testifies that a veterinarian has acquired an advanced level of competence in small animal medicine.
It is not a specialist diploma, nor is it a licence for a particular type of professional activity. It is intended that this master’s degree will support the growing demand for national and possible future international systems for species specific practice certification.

It will also provide a benchmark for veterinarians who wish to increase their knowledge and develop a habit of lifelong learning.

Content

The EMSAVM corresponds to 120 ECTS.

The EMSAVM involves coursework and written modules, including studies both within the existing framework of ESAVS courses and work carried out in the veterinary practices of the participating students.

Credit points, conforming to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) described in the Bologna declaration about higher education in Europe, are acquired over a period of two to four years for successful participation in the modules, validated by examinations.

ESAVS study programs consist of individual numbers of intensive courses varying from 5 to 10 days duration each and distance learning. Each course includes workshops in various forms and degrees and is contrived to help you in the acquisition of high levels of knowledge and skills in clinical fields such as:

  • Cardiology: in Europe 4 courses (I, II, III and IV) at 1 year intervals plus an advanced course (V), of 5 days duration; in China 3 courses*) (I, II and III) at yearly intervals.

The umbrella organisation of ESAVS is the European Association for Veterinary Specialisation (EAVS), a non-profit organisation registered in Luxembourg (A.S.B.L., reg.Nr.vol.411 fol.100 case 4).
