EVSO C : Certified Member

EVSO has decided that there should be a transitional period for the admission criteria for EVSO-C members. The object is to take into account the different types of training of practising veterinarian osteopaths so as to allow them to join EVSO. This transitional period will also allow time for the introduction of new standards of training in osteopathic veterinary medecine.

It should be noted that this chapter describes the modalities for becoming an EVSO-C member during the transitional period which ends 31 December 2018. Please consult the statutes, for more information on this subject.

EVSO-C members have :

  • the statute of certified members

  • the same rights as EVSO-B members

  • their name published on the EVSO list on the website

  • the right to use the EVSO name and logo

  • they pay an annual membership fee of \100.-. There is a \250.- charge for the certificate.

Initially, we would like to encourage all veterinarians to join EVSO as EVSO-B members. At a later stage, candidates can send in additional documents in order to obtain the EVSO-C certificate.
