Training and Residency
If you are interested in becoming an ECLAM resident, you will train in either a Standard or Alternate residency programme. Your training programme must be approved by ECLAM before you begin your official residency training. Residency takes at least 3, and no more than 6 years.
Residency requirements are contained in the Constitution and Bylaws. They are amended by the College as required to meet EBVS and ECLAM policies.
Prerequisites for applying for residency:
Have satisfactory moral and ethical standing in relation to the practice of veterinary medicine

Be a veterinary graduate of an EAEVE-approved veterinary school, unless exempted from this requirement by the Training Committee

Once you have completed your residency, you must submit your credentials application within 2 years. You must complete the examinations within 8 years.
