Those that have graduated from an educational institution that is not accredited by the CVMA or AVMA may be eligible for membership with the MVMA as a veterinarian. These applicants must first begin the process by registering with the National Examining Board (NEB). More information about the NEB can be located on the NEB’s website at https://www.canadianveterinarians.net/resources/examining-board-summary.
Those in the process of obtaining a Certificate of Qualification from the National Examining Board are eligible for Restricted General Membership with the MVMA upon:
- Successful completion of the Basic and Clinical Sciences Examinations (BCSE);
- Successful completion of the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLE); and
- Registration for the Preliminary Surgical Assessment (PSA)
A member holding restricted membership must practice under the supervision of a Practicing Veterinarian Member. Further, a restricted member must pass the Clinical Proficiency Examination within two years, failing which, a member’s registration may be revoked.
Those that have graduated from an educational institution that is not accredited by the CVMA or AVMA may be eligible for unrestricted membership upon successful completion of the Clinical Proficiency Examination (CPE) and granting of a Certificate of Qualification from the NEB.
