External Practical Training(EPT project)

All veterinary students need to spend some time gaining work experience in the various fields of the veterinary profession. Veterinary faculties help in offering suitable places. And generally areas such as farm animal and companion animal practice are covered well. Less common areas do not immediately attract young graduates and are harder to find, while being not less interesting.

EVERI is providing an information hub to facilitate contact between students, the various colleges of specialization and private enterprises on a European and international level. EVERI is also aiming to establish extramural study opportunities, which fulfill certain conditions demonstrating content, ambition and contribution of the studies to the curriculum to be eligible for credits.

If you are interested please contact EVERI - ems.everi@fve.org - for the more information (places available, training period, funding,etc) and for the application form.
