Federation of Veterinarians of Europe

Veterinary Continuous Education in Europe





VetCEE is a joint initiative of EAEVE, EBVS, FVE and UEVP

It has developed a Standard for structured continuing professional development and mutual recognition across Europe.

VetCEE Standard is complemented by separate dossier of competences based on the VETCEE standard. Each dossier of competences has been developed in collaboration with European associations acting on each different discipline of the veterinary medicine.

So far, VetCEE has adopted six (6) Dossiers of competences.

VetTCEE appoints independent panels of experts to evaluate programmes in the European countries according to the Standard and the respective Dossier of Competencies. Programmes that successfully pass the evaluation are approved by the VetCEE Board and granted the VetCEE Approval logo.
