This curriculum has been prepared by the Specialty Advisory Committee on Veterinary Microbiology (SAC) to provide trainees, educational supervisors and trainers to set out the requirements for the successful completion of the veterinary microbiology training programme.
A case log to accompany the curriculum has been produced for reference and/or use. It is not mandatory for trainees to use the case log and they may use case logs provided by their employer.
There are currently three internationally recognised veterinary microbiology qualifications (FRCPath, ECVM and ACVM) that residents can work towards. Each qualification varies in its respective training and examination format. In additional, individual training Centres may differ in how their respective training is delivered and assessed. However, all residents must satisfy themselves that the training offered meets the requirements of the respective College examination they are working towards. If clarification is required, residency candidates should contact the Examinations office of the respective Colleges to discuss their queries.
