ECVS Board/Committees

ECVS Diplomates interested in serving on a committee are asked to contact the ECVS Office at [email protected]. The Office keeps a list of volunteers, which the committees consult when selecting a new member. Please also indicate whether you have a preference for one of the committees (Credentials, Exam, Programme).

Please note that all committees always strive for a balanced composition of male / female, orthopedics / soft tissue, native English / other languages, private practice / academia, various countries etc. If a person is not selected, it is usually due to the fact that another candidate is better suited to the committee’s requirements in that specific round, and a person’s qualifications may be called for at another time.
