Since 1991, the European School for Advanced Veterinary Studies (ESAVS) has been providing training courses for veterinarians wishing to upgrade their knowledge in many areas of clinical veterinary medicine. 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 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. The objectives of this programme are:
To obtain the EMSAVM degree in the discipline of your choice, you shall attend ESAVS courses which are offered in several European locations, take and pass the respective examinations, submit a Case Log which promotes application of newly learned methods and skills in daily practice at home, write Case Reports and a Master Thesis (please refer to detailed information for each part in the respective sections of the program details). According to the rules of the University of Luxemburg all post graduate education is organized in modules.
In order to obtain the degree a passing grade has to be obtained for each module:
The minimum time requirement for the Master program is 3 years for candidates who are employed full-time.
For candidates who are employed part-time (minimum 20h / week) the minimum time requirement is 4 years.
Candidates must hold a recognized veterinary degree from a University or equivalent institution of higher learning. Institutions that are listed in the "anabin" data base and received an H+ mark are accepted.
Candidates holding a veterinary degree of an EAEVE/AVMA/AVBC accredited veterinary schools may enter the program immediately after graduation. Other candidates are required to have at least one year of professional experience in small animal veterinary medicine prior to entering the program.
For the whole duration of the Master program, candidates must be employed full-time or part-time in a veterinary practice or clinic with a caseload of at least 1000 diseased small animals (500 per clinician) per year and adequate facilities for examination, surgery, diagnostic imaging and hospitalization.
