If you graduated from a non-accredited veterinary college, you can apply for registration and a temporary license to practice on successful completion of the Basic and Clinical Sciences Examination (BCSE) and the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLE) of the CVMA-NEB Certificate of Qualification. If your application is accepted you would then practice with a restricted license under the direction of a licensed member, with specific conditions as recommended by the MVMA until you complete the Clinical Proficiency Examination (CPE) which should be completed within two years. If you do not complete the CPE within two years, the MVMA will review your status. This may include interviews with you and your employers. After the review, the MVMA may allow you to continue practicing under a temporary restricted license until you successfully complete the CPE the MVMA can revoke your registration and temporary license to practice.
Once you have successfully completed the CPE you would then need to apply to practice in Manitoba.
