The Residency Programme

An ECBHM Residency Programme is a training programme that has been approved by the Education and Residency Committee, allowing a graduate veterinarian (the Resident) to acquire in-depth knowledge of bovine health management and its supporting disciplines under the supervision and guidance of one or more Diplomate(s) of the ECBHM. Two kind of Residency Programmes can be carried out: a Standard Residency Programme or an Alternative residency Programme (see below).

To be admitted to carry out a Residency Programme, prospective residents will be required to have broad training and experience in clinical bovine health management and their supporting disciplines, which must be attained by participation in a one to one-and-a-half years internship, or its equivalent, as approved by the Education and Residency Committee.

A Standard Residency Programme (SRP) is carried out only in an approved institution, and consists of a period corresponding to at least 2.5 to 3 years of full time supervised training.
The period can be taken consecutively or on a part-time basis as long as the total time spent on training equals or exceeds 2.5 to 3 years (full-time equivalent) and the total period does not exceed 5 years.
All the information are detailed in the updated ECBHM Policies and Procedures.
The application form for the Standard Residency Programme can be downloaded by clicking here.

An Alternative Residency Programme (ARP) should be comparable to a 2.5 to 3 years full-time SRP and must be carried out under the supervision of a Diplomate of the College (Primary Supervisor).
For example, an alternative programme may involve working in a bovine practice under the supervision of a Diplomate of the College while undertaking a series of predetermined specialist training modules provided by external institutions.
All the information are detailed in the updated ECBHM Policies and Procedures.
The application form for the Alternative Residency Programme can be downloaded by clicking here.


ECBHM Annual Progress Report Guidelines

In order to help both residents and supervisor during the residency process, the E&RC together with the board build a document gathering all guidelines and recommendations for the elaboration of the annual progress report

Documentation and verification of the SRP and ARP

 According to the ECBHM Policies and Procedures chapter 2.4, the Resident is responsible for:
---- i) Compilation and maintenance of the Resident’s Dossier (comprising lists of clinical lectures conference attendance, conference presentations given, lectures and seminars given, lectures and seminars attended and documentation of external training)
---- ii) Submission of the signed (Primary Supervisor, Resident) annual progress report, case report(s) and case logs in electronic format to the Education and Residency Committee via the administrative office of the ECBHM at the end of each year of residency training.

By clicking here, residents can download the form for the submission of the annual report.
   a) .doc (Word) format

The yearly progress will be evaluated by the Education and Residency Committee (annual report and case logs) in collaboration with the Credentials Committee (case reports).

Evaluation grid for individual and herd cases report is available by clicking here:
   a) Credentials: Herd cases report
   b) Credentials: Individual cases report



Residents should notify the Education & Residency committee once an externship is arranged. Residents should fill the first half of the corresponding form (click here) and send it to the college administration. The E&RC may come back to the residents for discussing further details.
After the externship, residents have to fill the second part of the form and send it to the college administration. It is better to complete both parts in one form for easier handling! A certificate should be provided regarding the externship from the institution where it was done.
