There are lots of great opportunities to get accredited training in Zoo and Wildlife Medicine. Over time we will use this page to highlight a wide range of opportunities but for now here are details on the European College of Zoological Medicine. Contact us and help us build this resource!


European College of Zoological Medicine Residencies

The European College of Zoological Medicine (ECZM) is a European Veterinary Specialist College formed under the auspices of the European Board of Veterinary Specialisation.  

The European College of Zoological Medicine was established to make further progress in research and practice to benefit health and well-being of free-ranging and captive non-domesticated animals. The ECZM invests efforts to establish and maintain high standards of training that will lead to recognition as European Veterinary Specialist in Zoological Medicine. Certification increases prestige of the profession and results in more competent zoological veterinary medicine service to associated institutions and public parties/entities. The College encourages veterinarians interested in obtaining specialty status in Zoological Medicine to enter a residency program through the ECZM in order to obtain competences based on approved standards. 


The current list of ECZM approved residencies can be found here

Interested in knowing a bit more about what it means to be a resident and the differences between the programmes? We've reached out to current residents, in different countries and different stages of their programme and asked them to tell us a bit about their experience. We hope you enjoy!
